Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Have a Seat"

Description
: Photograph chairs, stools, sofas, benches, etc...

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)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.

Thanks. I believe it was made in the 1940s, shortly after my in-laws started buying the property we now live on. By the way, your photography has gotten better with each contest.

Only one? How long is forever? I once put in a toilet designed to sit in a corner at a 45% angle. It was pretty cool. No voting; shoulda thought about it earlier (and of course edited the best pic I could fine, rather than the first pic I did find).


Well, I remember telling everyone, use it now because it will be about 2 hours. Instead it took most the day. 12 hours later it seemed like forever. Least I could use the lumber yard's restroom as I went back and forth. At one point I had the entire floor ripped out. It was originally vinyl tile over luan over oak floor over pine subfloor. Now its Italian marble (surplus) over two layers of 3/4 plywood and sistered joists.

Interesting note: those windows don't go outside; this is a room-within-a-room, presumably designed so that patients could be monitored without their knowledge.
