Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Ty Troutman of Irving, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


bubbleCongratulations to Ty Troutman of Irving, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Ty is a first-time winner; he follows last week’s winner, Joe Andrews of Denton.

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 Ty:ty

Name: Ty Troutman

City: Irving

Title of photo: Bubble

Film: Kodak Tri-X shot at an exposure index of 1600 (film is not dead!).

Developer: Adox Adonal at 1:100, developed standing for an hour

Camera: Nikon FE

Lens: Nikkor 35 mm f/2.8

Scanner: Epson V600

About: I was outside with my son who was playing with a bubble blower when this huge bubble came out, floated over and landed on the bush. Somehow, the bubble sat there with its surface tension intact, begging for my son to rush over and pop it. I grabbed this shot not a moment too soon.
