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.
Title of photo: Who Am I?
Equipment used: Nikon D7000, Nikon 18-200 DX Lens
Tell us more about your photo: As for the circumstances of the photo, it comes from a pleasant visit to the Dallas Zoo (12/30/2011) to see the “Giants of the Savanna.” I was very pleased to see that it is a relatively new section and the exceptional quality of the environment available for the elephants and giraffes. This particular shot was done while we were actually feeding the giraffes. It was wonderful to experience these gentle giants up nice and close.
