Congratulations to Sarah Philipson of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!



Congratulations to Sarah Philipson of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Sarah is a prolific photographer, with more than 1,700 photos posted to her Flickr site. She follows last week’s winner, Jared Eckstein.

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 Sarah:

Title of Photo: Road to Forever

Equipment: Canon Rebel Xsi, 18-55mm, no flash

Tell us about your photo: This photo was taken on Mockingbird Lane just before the Buckner/Peavy crossing from the passenger seat of the car. These clouds over White Rock Lake caught my eye. I left the window up and shot about 6 different angles as we drove along. This was one of the last, shot almost backwards with no flash, and then edited in Photoshop to remove a few unsightly sign posts. I love to get shots from unusual angles, and shooting from the passenger seat of a car is definitely a great way to get them.

    The level of the cloud layer looks so low. Putting mine in mats today and hanging tomorrow
