Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "I'm a Geek, and I'm Proud of It."
: Everyone's a geek in their own right. Take photographs that display the awesome power of your geekiness.

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 as possible either digitally in-camera or in your image editor during post-processing. No selectively applied digital effects! 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) 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.

Yeah, I'm a train geek.

I took this photo sometime in 1983, after an all-nighter painting the locomotive with my pal Mark, seen there in the red cap. I did the white striping and the lettering, he did the rest.

Old-Skool geekery

My office at IBM Cherry Hill, NJ, circa 1989-90. Note the state-of-the-art equipment - the Toshiba 320x480 monochrome lappy with *two* floppy disk drives, the IBM PS/2 model 80 with a rare (working) 8513 monitor, and the *color* 3271 mainframe terminal. Note also that the internets ran in square tubez back then.

"Full Frontal Photo Nerdity" Full Size

I like to shoot digital photos through the viewfinders of antique twin lens reflex cameras for fun vintage photo justice. Last year I got this 30+ year old 12.5 pound large format camera at a yard sale for $10. I rigged up a light shade for it out of the box my tripod came in and started taking pictures with the camera either on the ground or on my tripod. But I wanted better portability. I still had some baby slings that I never got rid of after the kids outgrew them, and I figured the camera weighed about as much as a baby. Et voila!

In the course of building that many tank models, I've amassed quite a collection of extra parts as well. Most of them live in small plastic drawers, guarded by King Kong. Don't ask what's under the loincloth (let's just say I build very detailed models).

One aspect of building model tanks is cloning parts. I mix up a batch of room temperature vulcanizing polyurethane rubber, make molds from the original parts, and then cast copies with polyurethane plastic. Most of the parts I cast are for infantry figures and vehicle crews, so many of the part drawers are filled with various body parts. It can get kinda gruesome, especially when the parts don't quite cast properly. Here we have a special drawer filled with nothing but poorly-cast heads, with a small selection of those heads in the foreground.

How it all started: I asked my Husband once what the inside of a hard drive was like after one of ours died. He was kind enough to show me. Ever since, if one dies, I love taking them apart. The one in the picture is/was a Western Digital 500 GB drive, with 4 platters. They're very shiny, and they make lovely notes. The magnets inside are also crazy strong.

A hard drive platter wind chime. Engineer Husband was kind enough to drill the holes for strings and actually put this together for me. I somehow got stupid and couldn't figure out how to actually string them up. With the exception of the string and the S-hook at the top, every piece came from a hard drive. It sounds *very* pretty. :)

Not expecting to win any votes with this one, but I thought I'd share.

I wanted a computer in my kitchen. It had to be narrow enough to either mount on the wall or stand against the wall.

I ended up buying an antique table, cutting it up, and turning it into my computer case.

The power button is on the end of the brass pipe on the right. The fan grate on the left is made from an antique tennis racket.

I collect music and am especially prone to picking up items in special packaging, limited editions, etc... It's a sickness, but I'm OK with it.

Fornax, a Dreadnought from the AoBR set. I've made a few more touchups since then, drilled holes in the multi-melta, and he actually sits on a base these days.

... because having ONE DIY chapter of Space Marines isn't enough ...

(Clearly still a work in progress.)

The Retro-Gaming Rec Center at the Home for Captionless Lolcats.

The fuzzy beasts hopped into the frame just before I snapped this, because they associate the humans putting the silver box to their eyes with getting treats. I fail at cat ownership as much as photography.

This preposterous-looking setup is literally how my husband and I kept in shape when the blizzard made running outside more or less impossible. Playing MarioKart on the SNES while pedaling a secondhand bike-that-goes-nowhere at racing speed, while the stereo speakers play techno music at's a surprisingly enjoyable substitute for a gym membership.

Geekier than MMORPGs and more cheapskate on the entertainment expenses than a webcomic reader, I know.

But when you need 30 minutes of cardio every odd day to gain a Constitution point and going outside requires +5 padded armor and masterwork boots, what else is a girl to do?

"Someone who spends a lot of time and energy in a certain area, not necssarily computers or technology"
"A person with an unusual or odd personality."
From urban dictionary, I guess I qualify.

I found this pic which I think covers about 30% of my geekiness; D&D, computers, scale models, sculpting, converting and painting (the cat's sitting on some brushes). The cat is Oden, MIA since 11/09.

My Parris Island coffee cup is centrally placed to keep the nerd levels stabilized.

Also very fond of Simon's Cat. Would that be interweb geekiness?

Since buying a camera I've become a train nerd (it helps to have an active yard less than 5 minutes from my house).
