Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Dark and Forbidding"

Description
: Show us your dark side: creepy houses, dark alleys, spooky places, etc. Bright sunny fields of flowers, puppies, and kittens need not apply.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken, with as little alteration as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Located in High Point State Park is the abandoned town of Doodletown. The residence of mostly workers at a local mine, when the mine was played on in the fifties, New Jersey decided that they were going to absorb the land into the state park. The houses were all torn down, leaving only the foundations, and the town cemetary. Gravestones go back to the 18th century, up to the present (apparently people born there still have the option to be buried there. Someone visiting a deceased relative left this crown of vines hanging on the fence.
