Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Leigh Ann Field of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


Congratulations to Leigh Ann Field of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Leigh Ann really has a way with color, as you can tell from the color-saturated photos on her Flickr stream. She follows last week’s winner, Chris Zuniga.

NOTE: For all of you photographers out there, we’d like to invite you to participate in our contest to design an Art&Seek T-shirt. Click here to view all the details about how to enter your design. We’re probably going to wrap up the contest early next week, so get those entries in.

If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, 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.

field-200Now, here’s more from Leigh Ann:

Title of photo: You’ve Been Warned
Equipment: Nikon D60
Tell us more about your photo: This photo was taken on March 19, 2009 in Deep Ellum using ISO 200, aperture f/8.0, exposure 0.004 sec. What I like most about this shot is the humorous aspect. Some of the best graffiti is in Deep Ellum! Also, the image of a threatening sign set off-center against a gritty wall was just too good to pass up!

  • What if a graffiti artist painted THAT sign on his work?
    Kinda like posting a post-it note that says, ]
    “Don’t Post This HERE!”
