Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Selfies"

: Show us 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. 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)
- Stats can be found here.

Fade to Black

TL;DR version - How I became an existentialist: I've seen survived some shiat.

Full version - Well, you'll have to ask me that in another setting. Beer might help.

Newest photo. Me with 2 granddaughters. One of a series of silly selfies with them.

If others can't be in the photo, disable voting for this if possible.

Trying again...this time with voting enabled:

Myself, with one of my high school friends (his name's Jerry), who suffered a major TBI a few years ago. We were celebrating a mutual friend's birthday:

And, last one...myself and my friend Tom got ahold of our mutual friend's phone and took a few pics. We lovingly refer to this one as "The World's Worst Selfie":

Taken with a self-timer at Rowan University with the camera placed on the foundation of a light standard.  My wife and I had just bought a 2015 Honda Fit and we drove to the spot where we had met fifty years ago to take a picture.  It gets much better mileage than the '57 Chevy Nomad I was driving back then.

#3 - Max Patch, NC after a tremendous snowstorm in late March 2013. Camera was balanced on top of my backpack for this photo. Also really cool, was that this photo was published as the cover of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy's magazine! Cover here
