Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Alphabet Photography"

: Take photos of everyday or naturally occurring items that look like letters of the alphabet. One letter per photo, and no arranging rocks, twigs, etc to make letters. Latin alphabet preferred, but any modern alphabet will do (with an explanation included). Hieroglyphs, pictograms, and punctuation don't count for letters. Difficulty: The subject should be something that is not intended to be a letter.

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.

Note: I am operating on the assumption that the crossbuck is an X-shaped symbol, not intended to be an actual letter X, the same way a round sign is an O-shaped symbol, not an actual letter O. Moderators, if you disagree, please say so -- I will substitute a photo of something else if required.

Thanks. :)
