 Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Breakdown

Description: Show us pictures of things that are broken down, no longer work, and/or are in a state of decay. Difficulty: No people

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 or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

Does this count? I guess it's not really decayed if the cat was still able to sit in it.

These walls are what is left of my Great-Great-Grandfather's one-room thatched-roof house in Ireland (built c. early 1860's). Behind the overgrown vegetation you can just make out a couple of small modern buildings built on the property but have since been abandoned. When I visited in 2018, by my calculations, I was the first blood relative to set foot on the premises in over 100 years.

Ran across this at Louisville Swamp on one of my evening hikes one night a couple of years ago. Somebody must have nicked it, because it was gone the next night.

Dave's Old Truck Rescue. One of my road trips out west I had to pull off the interstate to take a work phone call. The road dropped me off in a tiny town in Washington, and I pulled to a stop on the first street that didn't look like it had heavy truck traffic going past me. When I actually looked up, there was a car graveyard right next to me that completely distracted me from the call.

So... I was pretty sure my first one wasn't any worse than the other dead things already posted... but since it got zapped anyway, here's a new entry. Sinking into the ground.
