Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: " Go Out and Get Some Strange"

: Intimate street photography of strangers. Get close to, or get to know your subjects. Location doesn't matter as long as it's a public location or event and the subject is a stranger. Difficulty: Each entry must be a different subject
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) 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.

This girl was walking back from the gym - said I got her at the worst moment, but I think she still looks great in these shots.

This taxi driver was taking a cigarette break when I snapped this shot of him on the streets of Manchester. He's been driving for 14-some years, really friendly guy.

(In retrospect, he may have been charging to pose for photos which would explain the look he gave me as I took this shot.)

Blurred Backing
This guy was walking along the Manchester City Centre with a big smile on his face. I snapped a few photos and asked him what he was so happy about. Turns out he just got back from an interview, and he nailed it. Ended up talking with him and taking shots for a solid 10 minutes...super nice guy.

'Scarlet' [her screen name] came into the local pub that was re-grand opening. Back in the day, she told me, she was a model. I believe her because...
She's British, you know. ;-)

Passion Under the Bar Lights
I'm sad to say I don't recall their names, but as they saw me taking pictures of others they wanted in on the fun. I got several of them I really like, and found them very willing portrait subjects, and way-cool people, besides.
