Congratulations to Laura Rivera of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is Laura’s second time to win our little contest. Her last victory came in May of this year. She follows last week’s winner, Aamir Muhammad Naeem of Doha, Qata.
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.
Now here’s more from Laura.
Title of photo: Windmill at Hwy 287 and Walnut Grove in Midlothian
Equipment: Sony a7 with an old Nikon Nikkormat 50mm lens from the 70’s
Tell us more about your photo: I took this photo while at one of the Midlothian Classic Wheels Cruise-In nights. I took a break from photographing fenders and tail lights for a second to get this.
I like to take pictures of windmills like this because I grew up seeing very few of them in the area of New Jersey that I’m from–so even though I have been in Texas for more than ten years, they are still novel to me.
