Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Keep Out!"

Description
: Stone walls, fences, borders, gates, doors, moats. Show what keeps us apart.

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. HDR, stitching, or otherwise combining exposures in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (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 (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

- Stats can be found here.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

Keeping us out of East Berlin

Clearly, there was much more to offer in East Berlin that in the west, so they built
a little wall to keep us out. Notice all the frivolity and gaiety on the other side.

When you really mean Keep Out, nothing says it like minefields and tank traps.

Mauerkrankheit
I only got in 'trouble' once while I lived in Berlin; I and a friend took a taxi to Friedrichstrasse, and while drinking Farkworthy amounts of booze, staggered down this section of the Wall throwing brickbats and rocks over to the East in the hopes of setting off a mine or tripwire and annoying the Vopos. The Military Police caught up with us after a while, and returned us to the Kaserne.

This fence probably dates back 20+ years, to when my back property line was up against a school. How this tree flourishes with a fence running through it, I don't know...

Long time no see y'all. This is my ONE picture for this week. Last week I was outta town taking the 1367 mile 'S' loop Link (new window)through Alaska. While I was gone I Missed the one contest I might have had a shot at; "Birds". Had I remembered to upload to flickr before I left I would have made it into Denali Park just in time to hit up the free wi-fi and submit, but I'm an airhead. Oh well.
I had shots for "The Shadow Knows" also, but I just plain spaced it out that week. I don't stand a chance for next week, maybe the week after...
