Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Signs 2: Everywhere a Sign"

Description
: Signs of all sorts. Must be a tangible sign not something such as "signs of aging or signs of spring".

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. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true 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 Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

Obviously something was lost in translation at the local Asian market--I'm not sure why these rock cod should be deemed to be any dumber than any of the other fish there:

One of many propaganda billboards (the only kind of billboards they have) that I took pictures of in Cuba at the end of the Bush years--very loosely translated, it says "The Bush Plan: Take away the home, the school, and all that we've built so well. Thanks, but we already live in a free Cuba."

A sign featured in Boardwalk Empire, the HBO series.  The fictional town of Tabor Heights is supposed to be near Toms River, New Jersey, but the set where it is filmed is on Staten Island in historic Richmondtown.  Fans of the show will remember that lots of mayhem takes place here despite the religious nature of the sign.
