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.
And now, here’s more from Richard:
Title of photo: Who Made Light?
Equipment used: Olympus OM-1 with B/W film
Tell us more about your photo: We were moving my grandparents out of the house they had been in for 40 plus years. We had finally emptied my grandfather’s workshop, which had been full of tools, machines and scrap. It was the first time the building had been empty since it was built. I was struck by the light from the window and the shape of the light on the floor. I asked one of kids running around to go look at the light and took a few shots. When I printed it, I didn’t like it because of wood framing. I started playing with the print, and after a few goes I ended up with the print you see now.
