Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Hobbies"

Description
: Besides photography, how else do you spend your free time? Keep it SFW please! Difficulty: No Fark or other websites.


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.


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)

- Drop by the Farktography Forum (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

- Stats can be found here.

Hobby #1: Benching

[image from farm1.static.flickr.com too old to be available]

Benching is a hobby that is half train-spotting, half graffiti-hunting. Basically, you hang out in railyards snapping pics of the trains coming through, flicking the graffiti you see on the cars and later deciphering it and matching it to the artist (or putting your own stuff up and tracking it across the US.) There's some lineman and hobo art (Colossus of Roads, North Bank Fred, The Solo Artist) that has remained visible for over half a century, and it's geeky fun to read the messages that people have passed along to each other over the years. It's also fun tracking a freight through Flickr pictures, benching forums and geo-tags.

One of my hobbies is eating, though I never tried this "scrumptious" delight from 7-Eleven. This thing, called a "P'Eatzza Sandwich", was supposed to have had pizza-like ingredients in sandwich form, served cold. Naturally, since any pizza enthusiast would rather eat hot pizza, that, combined with the price tag, ensured that this thing wasn't on the market too long.

One of the other hobbies that I have is checking out the cherry blossoms, and other assorted flora, while they're around. Unlike most people in the DC area that go to the Tidal Basin, I prefer a neighborhood near Kenwood Country Club, in Bethesda, MD.

And the quilting. I had to feature one hobby that's stereotypically female.

I am a quilter, though I didn't make this one. This was a prize-winner at a quilt expo in Santa Clara a few years back.

Dancing! Taken from a bboy meet in Seattle. For the shutterbugs that are interested in the mechanics behind the shot:

key flash: SB-800 with Stofen to camera right, 7' high, 10' away, pointed toward dancer. 24mm, 1/2 power, manual, optical trigger/SU-4
fill flash: SB-600 on camera @ 1/16th power 24mm w/ wide fill diffuser
f2.8 on Nikon 17-35mm, 1/5sec exposure, ISO 100
red blur comes from ambient red spot lights throughout the club

I just got my first camera ever a few months ago, and I don't own a tripod or anything, so I apologize in advance about the blurriness, and my lack of technique. Plus it's my first Farktography, so go easy on me, eh?

My hobbies I present here would be computers, video games, and enjoying nature.

#1: First, computers. I took this right where I'm sitting now. Link from clicking pic goes to somewhat compressed but muchly embiggened original.

#2: My second would be video games. I just took this just now on my bed. I wish I had a tripod and something besides overhead lighting. Without the blurriness and corner shadow, I would have really like this pic. Click on pic to see somewhat compressed but muchly embiggened original.

#3: Being in nature. I took this at my school a few weeks ago. Trying to hold a camera above your head pointing straight up and perfectly still is a biatch. Click pic for somewhat compressed but muchly embiggened original.
