Flickr Photo Of The Week

by Therese Powell 21 Jul 2015 10:50 AM

Congratulations to Mark Birnbaum of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest.



Congratulations to Mark Birnbaum of Dallas , the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Mark has won our contest several times. His last win was in Januay of last year. He follows last week’s winner Greg Westfall of Fort Worth.

markIf 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.

And now more from Mark:

Title of photo: Artisans

Equipment: Canon T3i, 1/20th sec. at f/9 18-200 zoom at 76mm

Tell us more about your photo: I spent a couple hours last Saturday morning schlepping around the Santa Fe Folk Art Market looking for cool stuff. Found some. Then I doubled back and went to all the booths to take a portrait of the artisans who had traveled from all over the world to sell their wares. I asked each for permission, and was never turned down.
