Congratulations to Sam Brown the winner of our Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Not only is Sam a talented photographer, he’s also a painter of striking images, which he posts on his Web site. He follows last week’s winner, Wade Griffith. More from Sam in a bit.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves another facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.
Now, more from Sam:
Name: Sam Brown
Title: Deep Ellum Dino
Equipment: Panasonic / Lumix DMC-FZ7
Photo: This photo was part of a class assignment at The Art Institute of Dallas, where I’ve returned to school to complete a degree in graphic design. I went to Deep Ellum to wander around a neighborhood where I once occupied a studio. It was dark that night, and as i rounded the corner I practically ran into this big guy who was quietly standing in the shadows of the street. He was a real “surprise find” and a great photo op!
