Weekly 112 - Photo of the week 2-16 May 2010
Posted By: rparmar, 05-09-2010, 02:25 AM

Welcome to 112th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between 2-16 May 2010.

Thanks to photolady for hosting last week, and giving me a chance to host this time.

POTW is a great way to see what Pentax owners are doing with their cameras as they post whatever pictures they took during the active week. Check in here to see a nice variety of great photos.

So grab your camera, get out there and shoot! Then come on back here and share your shots with your fellow Pentaxians!

Again same rules as before:

1) No theme, just post your favourite pix.

2) Let's keep it to under 6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week.

3) Any Pentax camera or Samsung SLR is fine, whether it's film, P&S, or DSLR.

4) Date: Sunday 2 May 2010 to Sunday 16 May 2010. Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes. Old shots with a new look from post processing during the open time period are also welcome.

5) The current host will appoint the new host as an invitation via PM. If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one and the new thread will start between 12:00EST and 5PM EST on the Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact Peter Zack, Moderator via PM.

Previous hosts: Each one is a hotlink to that POTW thread to look past at the previous 109 weeks. 1 Peter Zack, 2Eaglerapids 3 rmtagg, 4 Peter Zack, 5 daacon, 6 Bramela, 7 mtnbearhug, 8 dantuyhoa, 9 gawan,10 roentarre, 11 daacon, 12 Kris, 13 mtnbearhug, 14 SCGushue, 15 daacon, 16 maxwell1295, 17 dantuyhoa, 18 daacon, 19 maxwell1295 19(2) daacon, 20 Bramela, 21 Syb, 22 maxwell1295, 23 maxwell1295, 24 dantuyhoa, 25 Gawan, 26 Peter Zack, 27 borno, 28 daacon, 29 gawan, 30 Damn Brit, 31 maxwell1295 32 maxwell1295 , 33 dantuyhoa, 34 daacon, 35 Peter Zack, 36 Damn Brit, 37 Borno, 38 Kevint, 39 Peter Zack, 40 Timbo13, 41 daacon, 42 daacon, 43 gawan, 44 dantuyhoa, 45 daacon, 46 Rense, 47 daacon, 48 Rense, 49 borno, 50 Rense, 51 daacon, 52 Peter Zack, 53 Peter Zack, 54 dadipentax, 55 David Whiteley, 56 planedriver, 57 daacon,58 Bramela, 59 daacon, 60 gawan, 61 virgilr, 62 daacon, 63 RickL, 64 Peter Zack, 65 Peter Zack, 66 Causey 67 daacon, 68 Bramela, 69 georgeweb, 70 daacon, 71 seacapt, 72 daacon, 73 AOski, 74 Rense 75 eccs19, 76 daacon, 77 xs400, 78 daacon, 79 Bramela, 80 borno, 81 legacyb4, 82 daacon, 83 gawan, 84 Rense, 85 Peter Zack, 86 davef, 87 davef, 88 xjjohnno 89 Bramela , 90 Peter Zack, 91 daacon, 92 stevebrot ,93 reeftool, 94 jezza323, 95 oldschool, 96 Iris, 97 Rense, 98 planedriver, 99 xs400, 100 Peter Zack, 101 Netuser 102 Photolady, 103 Tamia,

Two of my macros, shot today. I myself like them a lot, although the last one is probably quite tough, because it seems to lack focus. It is there, but dof is thin....

As host it is perhaps traditional to kick things off, but I was too busy this weekend actually shooting to be on the internet -- for a change! So, a bit belatedly, here are some shots from the street festival I took part in (and helped to document) this weekend.

abstract protest

the children want to try too!

Ray Murphy on the outdoor skins

Vertigo Smyth at French's Cafe

switching on da noise!

bookcrossing event

(All shots with the FA 77mm Limited.)

I spent another weekend following my daughters rowing crew. Today was kind of a special one....her final race. She graduates next week. I still have about 300 or so shots to go through but here are a couple from the end of the day, one of those tough moments of saying goodbye to friends you are really close to.

Shortly before sunset, the fawn looks hours old, sorry for the poor quality,

Today, being in dire need of colour due to all the crummy weather and cold and snow we've had lately, I headed out to the local rock gardens and found these pretty prairie crocus'.

My wife and I went for a hike today. Here are a few shots from our hike. I guess I could have used some of my shots for the Project 52: Path challenge.
