Welcome to Farktography!
This Week's Theme: "Statuary"

: From public art to museum quality pieces, show us statues of every kind!

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.

There was a grounds keeper working in the cemetery this morning, and he was the only other person I saw. I suspect he laid the carnation, because it was very fresh.

At one time, the Champlain Sea (now Lake Champlain) was home to whales, as evidenced by more than simply the fossil record. The whales' tails may seem out of place, until you understand that at one time, they weren't.
