Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Silent Improvement"

: Photograph things that have slowly and quietly gotten better over time. From physical things like teapots or jeans to classes of things like frozen pizza or family movie night, as long as it is better than it was (and as long as it doesn't make staplermofo cry).

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.

German dessert wine made from grapes that have been left on the vine until they shrivel and start to grow botrytis fungus. The fungus gives the wine a honeyed flavor that did not disappoint 15 years later.

I love to ride old time trolley cars, also known as trams, streetcars or light rail vehicles, but the latest generation of this form of transit is much more comfortable.  The newer ones have low floors for easy entry, air conditioning, carry more passengers, are more quiet, and articulated for getting around tight corners in old cities.  This example is in Lisbon, Portugal.

White Point Gardens in Charleston, SC.  Used to be a bunch of salt marshes covered in oyster beds that they built gallows on to hang and bury pirates, as a warning to other pirates and to curse their bodies to never be part of the land nor the sea.  

I'd say it's better now, what with the pretty trees and lack of dead people and all.

Notre Dame in Paris.  Much better without that pesky hunch back infestation.
