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!

flea-bitten fox

The Natural History Museum, London no longer collects specimens and so only displays old, faded and flea-bitten animals. Or replicas. Check out my full thread for other stuff from this museum.

(Shot with the FA 77mm Limited.)

I set to exploring another city park today. Admittedly midday on a bright sunny day is not the best time for photography but being starved for warmth and light, I had to get out in it.

Flowers on the forest floor:

Two from today in between the World Cup festivities.

And this one from last week, (hope it's still timely). I was matching a *ist D and a Tamron 500mm mirror lens at 800 ISO given the gloomy light we've had recently.
