Hola Pentaxians!

It seems a good chunk of the world is battling heatwave type weather at the moment. Some of the most aversive conditions almost seem to seep into photographs - influencing what we shoot and how we shoot it. Here, the DA15 heads out with a couple of friends for some optical adventures. A short summer walk awaits you below ... bring some water.

A very nice series of thematic shots! I especially like the ones with the roots growing into the cement!

Lots of different processings here. Add grain and some could be mistaken for old film shots. And I mean that in a good way!
My favorite is the birds on the wires, great framing with lovely diagonal lines.

Thank you Dave and Philippe - definitely film inspired and intended to invoke some mood for sure. Appreciate the kind words.

Really like the tones and details in The August Alarm, I have seen few people who have mastered the 15, you are definitely one of them.
