Congratulations to Cathy Higby of Dallas, winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Cathy has won our contest multiple times. Her last win was back in January. She follows last week’s winner, Shane Iroony of Lucas, Texas.
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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Cathy.
Title of photo: “Beautiful Weed”
Tell us about your photo: I’ve been working on creating interesting blurry bokeh backgrounds using macro rings, which allow me to get super close using a 35mm lens (or any other lens for that matter.) They are an inexpensive alternative to buying a macro lens. I know it’s just a weed, but as they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
