Next week I am hanging five large photographs I shot last year. They will be on display at  Southlight Gallery for Artwalk on Wednesday night. As I gathered the photos in my studio for signing yesterday, I had titles for all except the one above. The perfect title came to me but in the time it took to sign the four other prints, that perfect title escaped my memory…

Then I decided to create this contest!

Come up with the perfect title for the above photograph and win! Search “The Art of Robert Leedy” on FaceBook. “LIKE” the page and post your entry on the wall. (only entries on The Art of Robert Leedy FaceBook page will be considered.) There is no limit to the number of entries you make. The more, the better!

The person with the winning title gets a free, limited edition print of the above photo (unframed, 16″ x 24″) – OR – lunch with the artist at your choice of either Biscotti’s, Blue Fish, Whiteway Delicatessen, Taverna, Chamblin’s Uptown Cafe in Jacksonville or Ragtime or M Shack in Atlantic Beach.

ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED UP UNTIL 10 A.M., MONDAY, DECEMBER 5TH, 2011. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED THURSDAY, DECEMBER 8TH, 2011 – OR – YOU CAN FIND OUT IN PERSON AT SOUTHLIGHT GALLERY ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT!

The background story on the photo:  It is a detailed shot of an old door in an abandoned factory. I shot this series of photos in the fall of 2010 when the building was opened to the public. Originally designed as a factory by architect Albert Kahn in 1923 for the Ford Motor Company, the waterfront structure lies in the shadow of the Mathews Bridge. The Ford plant had a short run – it closed in 1932 and later operated as a parts warehouse through 1968. The building stands empty today.
