Congratulations to John Johnson of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. John has won our contest multiple times. His last win was in May. He follows last week’s winner Fabio Bonasera of Pisa, Italy.

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 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.

Title of photo: I shot shot glassses

Equipment: Canon EOS M with a 22mm lens

Tell us more about your photo:  My wife and I were visiting Cuban Coffee Queen while in Key West (Great coffee) and walked next door to look over the tourist gift shop that calls itself the “Woolworth of the South.” I wasn’t looking to buy anything as much as I was looking for an interesting image to take. Being overly self conscience, I saw the shiny shot glass display and quickly took the image before I was noticed. We came back a couple of days later and purchased some things, so it all works out in the end.
