jacobCongratulations to Jacob Rasmussen of Garland, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Jacob previously won our contest back in 2010; he follows last week’s winner, Brian Neary.

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 Jacob:

Name: Jacob Rasmussen
City of residence: Garland
Title of photo: 95 11 12
Equipment: Canon T2i with kit lens (18-55mm f/3.5-5.6)
Tell us more about your photo: This was taken at a house I grew up in. My dad had taken this photo back in 1995, and we (my siblings and I) wanted to go and re-create the photo (here’s the attempt). I took this shot just to see if I could line up the old photo with reality to create a window to the past.
