    Since 1024 is 2^10, or 2 times itself 10 times, show something that has power in sets of two

    You mean like — a pair of something which, because there are 2, there is a synergy of some kind?

    bobroberts: I think that is one valid interpretation. Another could be the power that a two-year-old has when he gets into his moods (grrr), but that would be a very situational photograph and would be difficult to make it a good photo.

    You are not the first person to suggest that, so probably, yes.

    Aha. I just now notice that staplermofo has beat me to it. Great minds…..I mean dirty minds think alike. Ha

    I’m not sure I even want to use this one, but I was hoping I could get a ruling from you all as to whether this is SFW or not:

    Legs and Hands

    Thoughts? It was in a public place in Prague, so it can’t be too terrible, can it?

    the general consensus on fark seems to be if it’s art, as in old masters type stuff, you are ok. that seems to include statues.

    but IMNAFM. or YMMV

    My muse seems to have deserted me with respect to this theme. *sigh*

    Yeah, I think this theme is going to be quite depressing compared to the genius that was last week.

    Generally, that is the case, however, some employers get their panties in a bunch over even that much, and it could easily devolve into a debate over what constitutes ‘art’ or ‘old masters’ stuff (on the part of the employer to the hapless employee viewing the thread). It would probably be safer to link something like that, much as it honestly pains me to suggest it.

    You know what? strike that…it’s clearly classic enough art, I think it’s fine. Anything more detailed/modern/graphic might not pass muster, though.

    Thanks for the opinions….I still haven’t decided yet whether to use it or not, but I definitely see both sides to it and my thoughts echo both of Elsinore’s posts. On one boobie it’s clearly “art” (and in a public place, no less), yet on the other boobie I can see how some people might feel uncomfortable having something like that up on their screens at work. On a third boobie, though, if someone is looking through photos on Fark while at work, they shouldn’t be all that surprised to see things that are a little borderline. (And if they are surprised, they probably shouldn’t have been surfing Fark while at work anyway.)

    I’ll decide at the last moment. I’m sure there will be plenty of other boob shots to take its place if I opt not to use it, though. 🙂

    How about posting it and then post a linked version only if it gets Adminned out?

    I’m struggling with this theme as well.

    Also, would something like cross-processing, done in photoshop, but evenly across the whole photo, leave a photo eligible for farktography? I’m guessing no, but was curious.

    as an example:
