Flickr Photo Of The Week 9


Congratulations to Elizabeth Buchanan of Richardson, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Elizabeth has won our contest several times before. Her last win came in November 2017.  She follows last week’s winner, Samarpita Sengupta of Dallas.

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.

Title of photo: “Prelude to Fast and Furious”

Equipment:  Canon 7D, Tamron 70-20 f/2.8 lens; f/4 @ 100 mm; 1/1000 shutter; ISO 500.

Tell us about your photo: This photo was made right outside my apartment complex, the evening of last July 5, 2017, in Richardson. That storm produced thousands of lightning strikes! And, I dared not go anywhere other than outside my complex to get this mass of “don’t mess with Texas” clouds. It was a wild evening. Heavy rains came. Lightning strikes by the thousands were reported by local TV channels. There were some power outages.
