Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Farkitol 100mg "

: Show us how you like to relieve stress.

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.

All of the above (photography, books and teh kittehs)do more than relieve stress, they keep me sane and give balance to my life. They also relieve me of most of my disposable income, but are worth every penny.

I've written over 200 poems in the last 10 years

For me, noodling around with technology is fun and relaxing. I also like conceiving, setting up and working through the challenges of these silly shots.

A version of origami; patterned paper folding (tesselationing); start out as flat pieces. I do it in fabric, as well. Lower left red one--1/2 inch triangles; 11 hours work. Pops for more detail.

do simple things to help prepare to face the cause of my anxiety, like making bullets from molten staples for the inevitable rise of werestaplers.

Ultimately relaxing...and dishwasher safe!

Pressing the Red Button to see what happens

Or, put another way, spending hours building and flying model rockets.

Curious: xanax and wellbutrin and klonopin, oh my!

It always trips me out when people are on more than one benzo...

It's isn't this bad (^)* anymore, but I still take literally handfuls of pills each day...

*that was when I was going through chemo and had fifty-lleven anti-nausea drugs lol
