Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Brian Knowles, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! He follows last week’s winner, Brian Lopiccolo.



Congratulations to Brian Knowles of Plano, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! He follows last week’s winner, Brian Lopiccolo.

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 a 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.

Brian Knowles

Title of photo: Room For One More

Equipment: Sony DSC-W80 point and shoot camera, B & W, ISO 400, 1/25th exposure

Tell us more about your photo: I happened to be traipsing around the city during this year’s earlier snowfall and ended up at Mockingbird Station. I carry my P&S with me everywhere as I find it easier to catch candid shots this way.

The shot was of the Northbound Red Line and there was NO getting in. Seizing the moment, I cried out “Cheese!” and there you have the moment captured. Was nice to see that as cold and crowded as they were that people still found time to smile.

    Unfortunately, shortly after this photo was taken, Brian threw his momma from the train.

    I’m the surprised guy in the photo. I stood outside with friends at Mockingbird Station for several hours… no train. When it finally came, I wasn’t about to let it leave without me. I remember the girl next to me… we ended up facing each other, inches apart, on the way up to Plano as the train became more crowded at every stop.
