    Photograph things made of metal. While out and out size isn’t necessarily a requirement, your photos should illustrate “heavy” in some way (a small anvil would be acceptable, for example). Difficulty: No bands or music-related subjects.

    I think this was brought up in the original discussion.. what about literal heavy metals? ie: lead… mercury…etc… (I think they’re heavy metals…) Just curious. 🙂

    I guess I’d have to ask whether you could tell from your photo without a lengthy explanation that you had photographed a “heavy” metal and/or if by looking at the photo the average person would think it was illustrative of “heavy”. Beyond that, I can’t answer, particularly without looking at an example. Perhaps Silver Stag could weigh in since this was his theme suggestion.

    Well, I was hoping that the photo would give one the sense of mass, or heaviness.

    Sorry I’ve been slacking off, I’m starting a new job next week and have had a couple of projects going that have eaten into Farktography time.

    Priorities & all that.

    This one is turning out to be harder than I thought it would be. While there are lots of big metal things around, I can’t find one that screams heavy.

    I’ll keep searching and thinking.

    Yeah, the heavy part is tough to illustrate.

    Metallic? Check
    Appears heavy? Check
    Added bonus: Anvil’s specifically mentioned in theme description? Check

    Nah, I think the anvil is enough a part of the picture. Creepy ass spider, though!
