Congratulations to Jacob Rasmussen, the winner of our Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Jacob is an amateur photographer who spends a lot of time taking pictures of interesting sites around Euless, where he lives. Jacob follows last week’s winner, Teresa Rafidi.
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 Jacob
Title: Marking the Territory
Equipment: Canon Rebel XT (350D) and for this particular shot, I used the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III (i.e. the cheap-ish non-IS non-USM one).
Tell us more about your photo: I was walking around the Bear Creek Park area that’s near my apartment. As you can see from the other photos around in my photostream, I was mostly taking pictures of the trees and such. I also checked out this highway bridge just for fun and was surprised to discover a bunch of graffiti. I took this particular photo because I found it odd that the graffiti would be in such an out-of-the-way place. The viewpoint of the photo is pretty much the only viewpoint you can actually see the graffiti properly (otherwise it’d be blocked by those concrete beams, or you’d be standing too close).
