Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Some Hate Broccoli..."

: Show us portraits of your family members. Inspired by Ogden Nash's poem "Waiting for the Birdie": "Some hate broccoli, some hate bacon, I hate having my picture taken. How can your family claim to love you and then demand a picture of you?"

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.

- Image hosting sites can be found here.

My lovely wife, her sister, our brother-in-law and myself.

We had just finished a really nice dinner in Chicago and life was good. I put my camera with wide angle lens on the ground in the center of a parking garage and set the timer. Then we all acted like we were sky divers in free-fall. :)

My Dad on the Summit of Mammoth Mountain
We summited Mammoth Mountain last summer after a long hike below. So what if we just rode the gondola up and our 'summit hike' was about 3 meters up and 10 meters over from the gondola station? We did some actual hiking (8ish miles/2500 ft elevation gain) earlier in the day along the San Joaquin ridge with the spectacular Ritter range as our backdrop, so I think we earned the gondola ride. 1/3, Pops.

My Brother on Mt. Sunday. With a Sword.
When in New Zealand this past winter (summer for them), we took a Lord of the Rings tour out to Mt. Sunday, the shooting site for Edoras in the second and third movies. They had a bunch of props, including King Theoden's sword, Herugrim, which my brother is skeptically holding here. The wind was about 50 mph sustained with 70 mph gusts. It was hard to stay standing, much less hold a camera (or a sword) correctly. 3/3, Pops.

My girlfriend and her sister pose on the narrowest street in Lukang, Taiwan. It's called "Gentleman's Lane" or "Breast-Touching Lane" and it gets narrower in the back. When it was built, if a woman was walking down it, a man was supposed to wait for her to go all the way through - if he tried to get by her, they would end up brushing breasts.
