i took my first pic at a local park.. i went the previous day but earlier in the day and took some pics. there were these 2 birds grooming themselves on a rock and then i guess airing out their wings. it looked like they were posing

too bad they weren't actually in the air or i could have entered it into this contest.. bastards =P

anyway heres a couple small pics of them..

Willow grove Naval air station..Memorial day IIRC. It was quite the sea of humanity. If I wasn't so much into aviation I would have had second thoughts about it.

This was with a point-and-shoot digicam, and I haven't taken a real photo for a long time. I can't wait until I get one of those digital cameras that will let me use my old manual focus Nikkon lenses.

"St. Louis Helicopter" lifting air conditioning units onto the roof of the Mercury Marine plant in Stillwater, OK. Twas early in the morn on a Sunday; I heard the chopper blades thumping at about 5:30am, looked outside, then ducked inside to ask my (then) 4 year old if it was too early to go see a helicopter. He rubbed his eyes, yawned largely, then said "No, it's not too early."

This is just one of our pics of the event

And thank you ALL for your photos! Just because I didn't mention you doesn't mean I don't like your stuff! And even if I didn't like it, it doesn't mean your stuff isn't good!

Unfreakable: I have no idea what you just said, but I'll take your word for it.

Big-assed spirally vortexes of air that blows around a mountain. If there are clouds you can see it. If there aren't and you're in an airplane, you can feel it like that one United 737 that crashed a number of years ago in your neck of the woods. Some of them can be quite strong.

So many comments on a thread for sky pictures. Either some of you guys just don't have the time to enter in photoshop contests, or hopefully, it just takes a lot more talent than pointing and snapping a picture. I bet that near every person that has a digital camera has at least one cliche picture of the sky/sunset. Myself included of course, *ahem*

So many comments on a thread for sky pictures. Either some of you guys just don't have the time to enter in photoshop contests, or hopefully, it just takes a lot more talent than pointing and snapping a picture. I bet that near every person that has a digital camera has at least one cliche picture of the sky/sunset. Myself included of course, *ahem*

Were you here for last week's contest with the theme of decrepitudedness? There was good stuff in there, and we had taken pictures of things that were all decayed!

Yeah, I agree. I HATE ocean-sky-sunset pictures. They're so old. But a lot of these pictures are very nice, and some of the ocean sky views are even very impressive to a jaded old photographer like me.

Mr. Programmer posted this one, but it's really CuddleButt who came up with this sort of thing. We had one last week, and it's looking like with the continued success of Farktography we will be doing this again next week. It was TotalFark only for the first three, but we stuck it on the main page to see how it would do. It does rather well. So check out the theme for next weeks contest and make with the picture taking. Or get something out of your archive because this is gonna happen again next wednesday.

Thanks -- it's definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. I jumped at the chance to go over there when I found out one of my friends from college would be in Norway for a year while his girlfriend studied in Bergen. I could definitely live there if I had a shedload of money (since everything is so expensive) and if the weather wasn't so depressing all the time.

If you wanna see more pix, just copy the pic's URL and back up a level.

Even though I've only seen two instances of it, Farktography has quickly become my favorite thing on Fark. There are quite a few talented photographers here. Really makes me want to take my old Pentax out more than I do.

It's also nice to see threads so full of nice things, which don't eventually (or quickly) devolve into flame wars.

View from 9500' over the grapevine. Probably should have been paying more attention to flying, but the view was too damn amazing not to photograph.

But honestly, I can't compete with most of the photos I've seen here tonight. Maybe when I grow up or something. heh.

No man, don't think that way! You can compete with these photos! You would be amazed at what does well. Either way don't worry about voting, just post your cool pictures, like the one you posted there! Consider it one of those things that makes people want to come here and marvel at what there is!

One thing is quite pleasing is that with these Farktography threads people are compelled to either marvel at the awesomeness and refrain from posting disparaging comments or pull something out that is just as awesome to contribute to the wonder. We truly have among our own fantastic talent that has made these threads among the most popular of all that get posted to Fark.

I mean, this thread is simply about cool photos that you fine folks have taken of the sky and the post counter already reads 'lots' rather than a number. Yet none of them are flames, trolls, or other immature type of thing that would make a 'lots', or 'infinity symbol' thread unpleasent to visit. This is teh cool!

Is that what the output of a proper slide scanner will get you? If so, I gotta get me one of those. I may not have a film camera these days, but I have plenty of slides I took back in the day!

Think I'll still get me one of those film cameras, just to keep honest.

I am truly stunned gang. I think I am more stunned than last week. I'd spend more time looking at them all, and I want to go through all the comments, but it's late, and I'm tired.

I went to see Santana and Los Lonely Boys last night, and tonight went to see Al DiMeola. Al was amazing. Some on here was saying how he had mellowed out, which he had, but he played alot of his older heavier stuff. Absolutely great.

Again, amazing thread. Farkers have proven to consist of people of many great talents, personalities, wit, and humor. Give yourself all a pat on the back.

/bed time for me now, I'll be back tomorrow to go through this all

Actually, these are scans from film photos. True Kodak paper back in the day really was a sign of quality. ;) Scanned in using an Epson Perfection 3170 Photo. Really nice scanner that does do slide scanning as well.

Now if only I could find those boxes with the hundreds of slides that I have....

It's not a vapour/smoke trail from a jet, but possibly a meteor that fell on the 29th of May 2005 in Australia. There are two other trails at the bottom of the image that may have been part of a shower.

But that is a UFO at the top right ! (Unexpected Flash Object) from the glass I took the pic through.

Wow. These pictures are just gorgeous. I'd vote but I can't make up my mind.

Here are six of my photos, all taken in California within the past year. I took pity on people whose computers began to cough and sputter in the attempt to load all of these photos (like mine) so LINK! (pops - or it should, anyway). I cry for my bandwidth. No votey goodness since after going through roughly 500 posts I'm feeling oddly insecure.

Jacob's Ladder

The clouds prepare for battle
In the dark and brooding silence
Bruised and sullen storm clouds
Have the light of day obscured
Looming low and ominous
In twilight premature
Thunder heads are rumbling
In a distant overture...

All at once, the clouds are parted
Light streams down in bright unbroken beams...

Follow men's eyes as they look to the skies
The shifting shafts of shining weave the fabric of their dreams...

Ok. I have received several gmails, and there will be a change made to the submissions rules. I know I still have yet to try and make the rules more clear for all to follow.

Ok, here is the new rule. No more than 3 submissions per contest. I wanted to allow not only one since I know it can sometimes be hard to decide on which photo to enter, and I think 3 should be enough, and will help those out on dial-ups.

And those submitting more than one photo, please place each photo into a seperate post so that they can be voted on seperately, and not as a photo group.

Keep watch for the Farktography website for changes.

Thank you.
