Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Ugly....But Has a Great Personality"

Description
: Show us interesting photos of something that many would consider ugly. Difficulty: While the incidental human is OK, people cannot be the subject of the photo.

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.



Please note:

The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). 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.


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

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

He will haunt your dreams. Clicking goes to same size - nobody needs to see this any larger.

Actually, I'm not sure his personality was that great either.

This truck was cut in half and used to power a sawmill.

It has been sitting on the side of the farmhouse for about 50 years.

They say that form should follow function. This is what happens when function is a paranoid schizophrenic with two knives, a hole punch, tape measure, bottle opener, letter opener, scissors and a stapler. Form gets stabbed like a hobo.

Meet Mr. Kitty.

He has been my close friend and travel companion for about 20 years now. Mr. Kitty has been through a lot: 2 of his 4 suckers are gone, his nose fell off almost after I got him, his fur is matted, and if you look closely, you can see where his arm has been sewn and glued back on after my little sister ripped it off. He has built dams, cleaned rooms, organized parades, and even had a brief stint as a cross-dressing opera singer.

And I wouldn't trade him for the world.
