Congratulations to Cindy Higby of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the second time Cindy has won of our little contest. Her last win was back in June. She follows our previous week’s winner John Johnson of Fort Worth.

flickr winnerIf 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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Tuesday.

Now here’s more from Cindy.

Title of photo:  Self Portrait

Equipment:  Nikon D 610, using a 50mm prime

Tell us more about your photo:  I was at the end of a long day of shooting street photography in Dallas and that was my last shot walking back to my car. I was really tired and just looking down thinking about Vivian Maier and there was my reflection. I tried to frame it with crusty street edges and capture the light in an interesting way like she did.
