Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme: "Up & Down 2"

Description
: Stairs, steps, escalators, ladders, elevators, and ramps--show us things that take you up and down. Difficulty: People/pets/other items may not be the main subject of your photo.

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.

Not the greatest image, but this is a ramp I built for my mom's pet tortoise.  The ramp allows it to enter a tub of dirt inside the house in order to burrow for winter hibernation.

Stairway leading down to the Sistine Chapel at the Vatican.  Not the best shot. There was a split second where there were no people.

The railing contains the six hundred volumes of the Dai-hannyakyo Sutra; touching these sutras will bring you enormous fortune. It must work; I made it up all those stairs....

While a pier is flat it does take one "down" to the water.

While the perspective correction does accentuate the length of this ladder (and caused the white upper left corner), this ladder has to be at least 30 foot tall to get from this chamber to the cupola containing the church bell.
