Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Susan Chadbourne, the winner of the Flickr photo of the week contest!


Congratulations to Susan Chadbourne, the winner of the Flickr photo of the week contest!  She follows last week’s winner, Ezekiel Bierschank.

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 and Gini Mascorro will read your name on the air at the end of her daily arts calendar.

Now, here’s more from Susan:

Title of photo: Pecan Tree
Equipment: Canon Powershot SD 800 IS
Tell us more about your photo: I was sitting under the pecan tree in my front yard trying to take some shots of flowers. The flower shots weren’t working out for me, so I looked up and saw these fantastic limbs. Inspired by the angle of the branches against the brilliant sky back drop, I placed my camera against the tree and starting taking some photos. It was a gorgeous day for taking pictures.
