Welcome to Farktography! This Week's Theme: "Thick as a Brick"

: Bricks. From Legos to the blocks that make up the Pyramids, any "recta-cubular" man-made/carved building material. Bricks do not have to be part of a structure
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 on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.
- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Nice pictures, farkers.
I was sortof hoping this could be a picture/caption contest. I was totally ready to compare and contrast "As slender as Cinderella's ankle" with "Honey Boo boo's Mom's ankle: Thick as a brick"


And I only know who Honey Boo boo is from what I see on Fark.

It is, the "official" title is The Municipal Building of City Hall, you go there to get your building permits, marriage licenses and such stuff, a part of City Hall but not City Hall proper.

Beautiful work, folks!  I'd like to take a moment to welcome our Farktography First Timers: Mi-go amigo and Nothing To See Here, as well as a warm welcome back to mrlizard, whom we hadn't seen in awhile. Hope to see all of you back next week!
Results aren't final until the thread closes, but at this point, congratulations to top finishers BecauseISaidSo, swampa2, sleeping, and kestrana.  As always, the winner will receive much adulation and praise at and in the Fark Farktography Forum
See everyone next week for "Two-Tone Two Step"!
