Congratulations to Richard Payson of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest for his photo “Bars and Stripes.” Richard has won our contest multiple times. His last win was back in December 2016. He follows last week’s winner, Jim West of Ferris.
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 Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday 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 Richard.
Title of photo: “Bars and Stripes”
Equipment: Nikon 7100
Tell us more about your photo: We were in St. Petersburg, Florida for spring break and my wife and daughter were shopping. I was looking at the details of the shop they were in and liked the overhang over a doorway. If you look horizontally, it is easier to see what it is. I liked the shadows and lines and as I took it I thought it probably would be best in black and white. I think I was right.
