Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "More Silent Decay"

: Things that have lost the grandeur of their past (doesn't have to be abandoned).

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 (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

Ex-Glass bottomed boat from Rainbow Springs, in Florida. It's still a park, but we sneaked back into a "no guests" area and found these. Link goes to a picture of what it looked like.

Old truck stop (I think) north of Newberry (near Gainseville) Florida. Interestingly, you can still see the bathrooms on the side of the building. They're marked Ladies, Men, and Colored. At some time, someone covered up the word Colored. But you can still see it. History is hard to whitewash.

Pet Cemetery at the Presidio of San Francisco. It's been declared a Site of Cultural Importance, or something like that.

I guess these orange stands used to be all over the California highways. This is one of the few still standing, although it no longer dispenses orange juice or anything else.

Somebody once loved this truck, and washed it and polished it...then one day the driver got all liquored up and drove it somewhere he shouldn't have. They had to bring it down off the hill in pieces.
