Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Farkitecture 2"

Description
: Buildings, bridges, and other man-made structures.

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 Farktography.net (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Stats can be found here.

The sky color is thanks to light pollution reflecting off an overcast sky. Each clear brick represents a soldier who lost his or her life while on duty but not during a declared hostile action.

Golden Gate Bridge, from the USS Potomac (FDR's Presidential Yacht), July 4th.

It's a bit noisy, but couldn't be fixed without some serious post.

Heinhold's First and Last Chance Saloon
Birthplace of Jack London as a writer (so it's in Jack London Square, duh), it's been a bar and a 'fixture' since 1883, and pretty much unchanged - they're still allowed to use gas lights.

But, the photo is straight, the entire bar leans at 5-10 degrees.  The ground in the aft end subsided in the 1908 Earthquake, and no one could ever figure out how to fix it.
