Congratulations to Anna Dykema, this week’s winner of our Flickr Photo contest! This is Anna’s first win, and she follows last week’s four-time winner, Teresa Rafidi.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than 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 more from Anna, who’s a professional photographer with her own Etsy and Flickr sites.
Name: Anna Dykema
Title of photo: Pontiac
Equipment used: Canon Rebel XTi and Photoshop
Tell us more about the photo: This is the front end of a 1939 Pontiac Coupe that has been hidden away in a barn for decades. I came across it at the Good Guys Lone Star Nationals at Texas Motor Speedway earlier this month, where it was for sale. Sadly, I did not go home with the keys to this beauty. Instead, I captured it with my camera and gave this particular shot a vintage feel with Photoshop. I have a deep affection for vintage cars and am drawn to them when I have my camera in hand. I am attracted their intrepid lines, the optimism in their design. And the realization that these beautiful old cars were all made by human hands only deepens my affection for them.
