Flickr Photo Of The Week

Congratulations to Shane Iroony of Lucas, Texas, winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest.



Congratulations to Shane Iroony of Lucas, Texas, winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the second time Shane has won out little contest. His last win was back in January. He follows last week’s winner, John Crisp of Mesquite, Texas.

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 Shane.

Title of Photo: “This Way, I Said”

Equipment: Samsung Galaxy S7

Tell us more about your photo: This photo was taken at the intersection of McDermott and Central Expressway in Allen, Texas. A large flock of birds were perched on power lines and stoplights as if they are all waiting for a sold out concert to begin. It is always a fascinating scene to observe and photograph. Some believe that the reason the birds usually face the same direction is because of the wind. It is believed that they usually face the direction of the wind for easier subsequent flight.
