Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Jim McDonald of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


Congratulations to Jim McDonald of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!  He follows last week’s winner, Randal Dean.

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.

Now here’s a bit more from Jim:

Title of photo: Lincoln Centre Sculpture
Equipment: Camera: Canon Digital Rebel XT  Lens: An old 28-80mm film lens.
Tell us more about your photo: I’m not a “serious” photographer by any stretch of the imagination. I had my camera with me after some training classes I attended at the Lincoln Centre. The campus had some neat looking areas, and the lowering sun caused some really interesting lighting so I decided to hang out after class and take some shots. The sculpture caught my eye. Among several shots I took of the sculpture, I like this one because it almost gives the feeling of being enveloped by it.
