Congratulations to Laura Rivera of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Laura is a first time winner of our little contest. 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: AT the DMS Late Night Inca Celebration
Equipment: Sony A7 with Sony 28-70 mm lens
Tell us more about your photo: I took this photo while outside the front of the Dallas Museum of Art at the May Late Night event. There were many ways that the museum was celebrating the opening of their new Inca: Conquest of the Andes exhibit. The trees at the front of the museum entrance were all draped in colorful paper decorations, and I went to take a closer look at them. That when I saw these women in their bright costumes–were an irresistible subject to try and photograph. I loved how their face makeup and expressions seemed to capture the spirit of the Incas.
