Photo of the Week #117 June 6 - June 20
Posted By: bbluesman, 06-10-2010, 10:12 PM

Welcome to 117th edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between June 6 and June 20, 2010.

Thanks to JeffJS for hosting last week. I'm putting thread up a little early because I'll be away from computer over the weekend and didn't want to hang anybody up. Yes, I'll have my Pentax camera with me-Doh!

POTW is a great place to show what you're shooting day-to-day with your Pentax cameras. It gives us all a chance to virtually visit with one another, to get a glimpse of what it's like where others live and where they've been, and to extend the same invitation to others to share what we've been seeing.

So grab your gear and do your thing and share the optical love around.



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 30 May 2010 to Sunday 13 June 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 Noon EDT and 5PM EDT on Sunday. If the thread doesn't start, please contact Peter Zack, Moderator via PM.


Ready? Great! Shoot and post!

The agency I work for held a fundraiser walk-a-thon event this weekend and part of my role was to take photos. I shoot 6mp jpegs in a primarily automatic mode at such events because I am going to be using them in Publisher documents. However there is an area of the pathway that is rich in scenery and often fauna, so I try to make a quick detour, change my camera settings and sneak in a few shots. This time there were three pelicans in a pond but I really didn't have time to take full advantage of the situation.

Thanks for hosting, Mark. Lots of great photos this week folks. It's been rainy and busy here, which kept me indoors much of the time. Still intrigued by the "In and Around the Kitchen" challenge, I took some photos in the galley.






And then when the rain moved on, there was fog.

So funny to see Lewis and Clark portrayed in dress uniform! Out this way they are always pictured in buckskin. I can see the process in my mind's eye. First day...gotta ditch this silly hat. Second day...the tails on this coat keep catching on things. Two weeks later...damned, they did not tell me these pants would shrink!

I wonder which one is Lewis...

Hi all, great photos. I'm kind new here and a total SLR newbie so comments on how to improve is definitely welcome. Still would like to share pictures just for fun. Here are some from today's hike.

I used 18 images for this one... might be a bit overkill but the tree is huge.


Information of the tree...
