Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to David Hobson of Frisco, our Flickr Photo of the Week winner!


Congratulations to David Hobson of Frisco, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest ! This is David’s first win, and he follows our previous week’s winner, Sonja Quintero.

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 David:

Title: Wabi-Sabi Wall McKinney

Equipment: A Canon T3i with the standard 18-55mm kit lens.

Tell us more about your photo: This photo was taken at the corner of Virginia and Tennessee, in McKinney, Texas very early on a Sunday morning. … I enjoy taking pictures in old downtown McKinney and I especially like this wall. It has lots of wabi-sabi character that changes as the sun moves across it. I have many pictures of it over the years.

I guess I will call this photo ‘Wabi-Sabi Wall McKinney.’
