Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "The Camera Made Me Do It"

: We all take photos of stuff that is just..odd. Stuff that 'normal people' don't notice and certainly wouldn't photograph. We take these pics because photography is on the front-burner. And some of them just might work. This should be the place to show the stuff you shoot that no one sees otherwise.

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.

Boy, did I get yelled at for taking that set of pictures....

...was flying to Oregon from Minnesota, looked out the window and saw a fire on the ground over Washington. Took the shots through the window, ended up capturing the atmosphere and curvature of the Earth along with it.

Really, I hate flying, and wouldn't have even looked out the window if I hadn't heard the camera calling my name to take a picture....

I bought a new lens last week. I stuck the lens on the camera to play around with, then headed home. Pulled up to a stoplight, and this caught my eye. Would never have taken it, but... the camera was there, the man was there...

Unfortunately, I was just learning the lens, so I was worried more about focus than fov.

Walking from downtown to the riverfront in Redwing, MN with my wife and in-laws. My father-in-law, a retired photojournalist, commented that he was glad that "What the hell is he taking a picture of?" wouldn't only be directed at him anymore.

The wasps chew at the garden fence, presumably for their papery nests, and drink at my little solar-powered fountain. Chewing up fences is thirsty work...Took me several days and lots of cups of coffee sitting on the garden wall to get this shot.

In this case, the camera making me do it was the Infrared camera which was displaying how hot I am. I'm the hot-head on the right.

I just got my Voigtlander Micro 4/3 to Pentax K mount adapter. The camera is an Olympus PEN EP-1, with a 20 year old 200mm zoom with Macro facility. I removed the EP-1's lens, and used it to test the Macro. Some nice results!

A sample of Malachite at the local Natural History Museum, taken with my Olympus PEN EP-1 and a 20 year old Pentax-K mount telephoto lens with macro capability, manual focus and exposure only. Hand held, so focus is a bit dogdgy. I love museums which encourage cameras (although they frown on the use of tripods, but I have a small portable one which I can sneak in under my jacket...)

Ok, I have never posted a picture on Farktography but I liked this one so much I had to. This guy was about 4" long.

These were in the alley behind my hotel in LA on one trip. My traveling companions were not amused every time I ran off, camera-in-hand, saying "I have to get this."

I'm not a photographer by any means. I can barely figure out my Nikon CoolPix L1 (which this picture was taken with). I knew I needed macro!

Not sure if this counts as something most people would keep driving by--it's along a back dirt road in the middle of nowhere where people drive, but it's not heavily trafficked. Also, most people out there probably don't have a camera handy.
