Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "No Disassemble!"

: Take something apart and make a photograph of the pieces. Wide open subjects, as found or DIY, destructive or surgical techniques, parts is parts.

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. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true 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 on Fark (new window) or (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)

Disassembled DIY LED light

Curious: i too have taken a HDD apart. yes that's a magnet, one can't be too cautious when destroying data.

The one attached to the read/write heads (behind all that metal shielding) is likely more powerful than the one you got right there above the platters.

Ace25: Disassembled DIY LED light

That's what I like to see.

And for my entry - This was a damaged unit. I cut the board straight in half, pulled off every diode, re-bridged every trace at the cut section by hand, started at first trying a red/blue pattern (all red led on the far left as you see) but realized that wasn't going to work so I semi-randomized my picks.

Then I had to fiddle a lot with the cam. But otherwise, not bad.
