Congratulations to Richard Payson of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Richard has won our contest multiple times; his last victory was back in June 2013. He follows last week’s winner, Bryan Varner.

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 Richard:

Name:  Richard Payson

City of residence:  Fort Worth

Title of photo:  Pop Culture

Equipment:  Nikon D5100 with Tamron 18 – 270 zoom

Tell us more about your photo: I was at Fiesta Texas in San Antonio riding some great roller coasters and had a little time before catching my ride back to the hotel.  Wonder Woman caught my eye in one shop window so I took a few shots.  I liked the bright colors against the dark.  I didn’t have a tripod so I leaned against a building and took a deep breath to steady myself.
