Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Matt Harvey of Addison, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Matt previously won in February for this photo.  He follows last week’s winner, KT Shiue.

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.

Now here’s more from Matt:

Title of photo: Ghosts of the Bayou

Equipment used: Canon 60D w/Sigma lens

Tell us more about your photo: Recently, my wife remarked that she’d never been to Caddo Lake but wanted to visit, having heard of its primordial environment. Since my family lives in Tyler, we took advantage of a weekend trip to East Texas to visit them to take a day trip over to the lake. While there, I shot several hundred frames and had initially rejected this particular photo, but later a re-examination proved that it was a “keeper.”
