The photos of the week: November 10-16

Posted by Derek Flack / November 16, 2012

Jarvis Bike Lane ProtestThe photos of the week collect each of the editor-selected photos of the day into one post for a contest to be decided by our readers. Sponsored by Posterjack, the photographer whose image receives the most votes will be awarded with a voucher code for a 24"x36" poster print of their work.

All the rules and fine-print can be found in the original announcement post on the blogTO Flickr page. One thing to add, however, is that the voting period ends at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, after which the winner will be contacted with the good news (We're still in the process of contacting past winners).

For those photographers whose images are featured below, please feel free to give us a little information about your shot — i.e. where and when it was taken — in the comments section. Who knows? Maybe your description will sway voters in your favour!

Tough call this week. We've got "Toronto's Tiananmen square", ass sniffing pigs and, the last shot, which I'm fairly certain is a photo of Jesus (or perhaps my monitor needs some adjusting).

"vote has to go to subjective art"
The irony is strong in this one

The first should be called "Moron of the week."

taking a lousy photo can't be changed by making it black and white. it's still a lousy photo. and do we still think that leaving the shutter open on a city street at night is this revolutionary thing?

Of course the pinko cyclists and downtown hipster crowd would vote #1 as the photo of the week.

but be careful. your critique might encourage a flux of double exposures and light painting now.
