Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
Giving Thanks 3

Description: It's Thanksgiving in the USA of what's been a very difficult year; show us what you're thankful for.

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

Our 'thankful' is extremely complicated, with a lot of personal things I'd rather not put here, but a month ago we were starting to wonder where we could live, to being able to scrape together an overnight trip that got me out of city limits in the first time in almost a year.  I can't tell you how much Kat and I needed this.

Anyway, here's a Falcon-9 going trans-sonic as it lifted the Sentinel-6 satellite into orbit this morning (11/21) It was beautiful and I hope a harbinger that leads us to 2021 in good speed.

6 years ago my wife and I decided to quit our jobs, move to North Carolina from Connecticut and start over. 5 years ago now, we moved into our new home in western Carolina. Absolutely the best move we ever made. I know a lot of people knock on North Carolina on Fark, but I absolutely love this state, from the mountains of Asheville to the Wilmington shore, it can't be beat. I am thankfiul every day we moved into such a great area. We have explored a lot of the state, but have so much more to see.
10/10 would move here again.

I am profoundly thankful for the 20 years I had with this little comedian:

With everything that's happened this year: the chaos, the pandemic, the loss of four uncles and a neighbor of 15 years, I feel like I haven't been permitted to properly grieve. She was my little flying squirrel and a kitten until the day she died.

I'd say Rest In Peace, but she's probably parkouring off of the pearly gates while St. Peter threatens her with a squirt bottle.

Incredibly thankful that our band kids got to have a marching band season at all this year. There were no competitions, and their show was shortened, but they made it through the season without any outbreaks. Loved this motion shot, too.

Managed to get some camping in; pretty much a perfect socially distanced activity for a pandemic, and the woods are one of my happiest happy places, so bonus. Unfortunately I forgot my larger cup for my camp latte, so I had to improvise.

I am always grateful for a gorgeous Sonoran sunset

Thankful to God for many things. Especially this little fella clinging on to me. The towel was for a fever he was running at the time (teething). His pattering about the house and baby talk has brought in lightness into our midst. Especially during the lockdowns we had.

I am lucky to have been friends with this dude

(Bar in Tombstone where we pulled the old "It's his birthday" trick)

I thank my meteorologist father for teaching me to appreciate the nuances in the weather

All three photos are of a spec house completed this year.   I was working with a crew I started with in the early 1980s.   The GC let me design my own decorative touches, that I based on an Art Deco theme in the door and window casing.  Now I'm back working with a micromanaging control freak with no possibility of creative decisionmaking.
I tiled this shower, and turned the tile at the back of the alcove 90 degrees for an interesting effect.

I had to merge two different crown moldings, and hide the edge of the cabinet which stuck out from the wall, so I did a stylized deco ribbon effect.

Grateful for these goofballs to come home to.

I hope you'll repost the photos of your puppers separately so we can vote on them (or at least 3 of them anyway). Collages/combined exposures aren't typically allowed unless the theme specifies.

Even during a plague, my family took the time to treat my parents to dinner for their 61st wedding anniversary.

Some of you may recall, my mom's a breast cancer survivor. 5 years in remission.

This collage is on display at the restaurant we took my folks to for their anniversary dinner. At the bottom, second pic from left, is my dad. He plays Santa every year for the restaurant's owners (they're very good friends of the family), as well as other restaurants here in Lewiston, ID.

I'd say Rest In Peace, but she's probably parkouring off of the pearly gates while St. Peter threatens her with a squirt bottle.

Is it bad form to offer condolences on the loss of your companion while laughing out loud? Your last sentence is the funniest, most visually evocative that I've seen since I read Douglas Adams' works.

The friendship of a pet is one of the greatest gifts we could ever have. I am so sorry you lost your friend.

I'm thankful that my old university lets me shoot hockey a well lit arena with photo holes in the glass. Hopefully I can do it again when things start up again next fall.

I'm thankful that -- despite the meme cliché that 2020 has become -- I still remember to not see through the beauty in the world.  Pull over to the side of the road, get out of the car, grab the Olympus, because that field over there is magic somehow . . .

I'm thankful that a coworker begged me 8 years ago to take this dog as a rescue that was deemed uncontrollable. Today, She is sufficiently run to her happy heart's content.

He completed round 4 of chemo 2 weeks ago, and we've got another 2 weeks before his next ultrasound to see how successful the treatments were. Fingers remain crossed.

Definitely lots to be thankful for in this thread; thanks for sharing your images, everyone!

I'd like to take a moment to welcome Farktography First Timer Holdtheroll. It was wonderful having you join us this week, and we hope you'll be back next week!
