Congratulations to Mike Muse, the winner of our Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Mike wins the contest with the first photo he’s uploaded to the Art&Seek group page. He follows last week’s winner, Melissa Frank. More from Mike in a minute.
If you would like to participate, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to 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 another 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 Wednesday.
Now, more from Mike:
Equipment: Nikon D60. 18-55mm lens
Tell us more about your photo: I had found the gecko in my mailbox, so the first thing I did was grab my camera. I was able to take a couple of shots of it in a jar (so it wouldn’t run away) but I just wasn’t able to get one I really liked. So I thought I’d try to hold it in my hand. It stayed calm, and I was able to get the shot posted. When I was done with it, I returned it to the mailbox so it could continue to eat the bugs.
