Congratulations to Jeffrey Stvan of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the first time Jeffrey has won our little contest. (Let’s give him/this post some likes. ) Jeff follows last week’s winner, Robert Jackson of Allen.
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 Jeffrey.
Title of photo: “Dividing Line”
Equipment: Nikon Coolpix S8000; f/4.7 @ 36 mm; 1/160 shutter; ISO 100
Tell us about your photo: This is a detail of Richard Serra’s towering steel sculpture, “Vortex” (2002), which is located just outside the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. It was captured on a bright fall day in 2011 when I found the vivid orange oxidation of the COR-TEN steel edge – which here so sharply divides the clear blue of the Cowtown sky from the dark interior of the artwork – simply impossible to resist. It really is a must-see!
