Congratulations to Lyn Caudle of Lancaster, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Lyn has won our contest multiple times; he last won in June for this shot of the Kessler Theater. He follows last week’s winner, Brian Lopiccolo.
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 Wednesday.
Now here’s more from Lyn:
Title of photo: Tracks to the Town
Equipment used: Nikon D700 w/ 28mm f2.8
Tell us a little about your shot: I was out on a Saturday looking to shoot with some new gear, and downtown Dallas and its environs are my kinda subject. So I was at the Calatrava Bridge (the Margret Hunt Hill Bridge I believe is its formal name). I really like the older tracks and bridge that are here, still in use today. The leading lines always catch my eye, and the fact that these lead you to downtown tells its own story. When I arrived there I encountered a couple of other photographers, a Mac from Fort Worth and a Bob also from Forth Worth, I think. Bob was very kind and lent me a lens to try out, as I am trying to get a new selection together, having switched back to Nikon recently. I was able to “pay it forward” the very next day while shooting the Traveling Man in Deep Ellum. A small group of photographers showed up and needed a tripod, so I loaned them mine. Kinda like how that works out.
