Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Comfort"

Description
: This theme is all about comfort. Your favorite blanket, a cup of cocoa, or perhaps whatever calms your soul after a long day.


We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:

- 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.


Ideally, your photograph should be presented as taken with as little alteration in Photoshop or other image editing programs as possible. No removal or addition of image elements, no spot treatments, and no HDR images, please.

With few exceptions (red-eye removal, sensor or scan dust removal), modifications to the original photograph must be made evenly across the image.
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.

To have your photo website listed on the Farktography home page, please send your Fark username and url to admin(at)farktography.net and we'll get you up forthwith. (also, indicate if you're willing to share your photographs for use as source images in PhotoShop contests)

I may be stretching the theme a little, but the waterfall at Kent Falls is one of the most comforting sounds and places I know. Off season, its only ever me there, poking round the different falls.

I almost saved this for the food theme next week, but it fits more here. Taken at Baby Blues BBQ in Venice, California, which is the only place outside of North Carolina where I've found decent Carolina BBQ. My BBQ sandwich, a side of mac 'n' cheese, iced tea that I had to add artificial sweetener to, and BBQ sauce I brought myself. Yum.
