Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Farktography Classic: A day in the life of..."

Description
: Go somewhere, do something, take pictures. Post your best three. Note: All pictures must be taken on the same outing or day.
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.

Sunday I went to do a band photo shoot, and while we were getting things set up, I had the guys lined up like this to snap some initial photos. About 10 or 15 minutes later while we were shooting other pictures, the cops showed up to investige a report that someone was "exposing themselves" in this alley. Alas, I did not get a photo of the guys with the cops, but hey, no one got arrested.

Macy's 8th Floor




So, we walked down to Macy's to check out the restaurant on the 7th floor. The building had a cool central courtyard thing that went up 12 floors. We wanted to see it from the top and got up to the 8th floor before running out of escalators and elevators. This floor was pretty much empty and we probably weren't supposed to be there. But it had these four pillars and Mopsy had the idea to put a kid at each one. I dropped a Speedlight with a PocketWizard behind the front post and this is the result.

After the photoshoot I walked down to the river to do some shooting. I like how the curve of the amphitheatre mimics the curve of the bridge.

Me - Can I take your picture?
Lady - Me? (almost looking over her shoulder to see who I was really asking)
Me - Yeah, you. This is beautiful. You in front, the city behind.
Lady - You want to take a picture of me? (still incredulous)
Me - Yes. May I?
Lady - OK.

click. click. two pics. look at result.

Me - Perfect. You look beautiful.
Lady - (warm smile)

I'd call that a win-win type of deal.
