Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Urban Art 2"

: Graffiti, murals, carvings, randomly welded sculptures, etc.

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.

Also found in Valparaiso, Chile. There was a lot of graffiti and street art there, hard to narrow it down.

Is it art? Not intentionally, but it's a cool vanishing perspective. I drive through there once a week and keep meaning to bring my Canon.

Double trick, the elevated rail actually touches the ground. It's not a wormhole screwing with perspective.

"Urban" and "Art" both mean something different in the tiny mountain town.

Wall of Katrina (was outside originally)
2014-03-20 06:07:30 AM  
It's something I came across in a New Orleans museum dedicated to explaining Katrina to visitors (like me).  The wall was preserved to document how the people managing the crisis triaged damaged properties.  It's like a giant Post-It note on the house that people can read quickly from a distance.  And the "X" with numbers in the quadrants relayed a simple coded count. I forget which each "cell" means, but it's a gruesome reminder of how chaotic that time was for the people that live there.

Sorry for the threadjack!
