Photo of the Week #122, July 11 - July 25, 2010
Posted By: VaughnA, 07-18-2010, 01:46 PM

Welcome to 122nd edition of the Pentax Forum's Picture of the Week! This edition covers photos taken between July 18 and July 25, 2010.

Thanks to jmschrei for hosting last week. Another first time host here so let me know if something isn't right.

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.

The best pictures can only be taken with the camera you are carrying with you, so have you camera with you and keep always an eye on the things which are and happen around you.

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 11 July 2010 to Sunday 25 July 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!

Thanks for taking over Vaughn. I love the dahlia, eccs19. I didn't plant any this year, our spring was so slow.

My son had a very early morning shift at Starbucks this morning so I took advantage of the (forced) excuse to get out to the reservoir and catch the morning light.

I guess I'd better play myself. A couple from this weekends trip to Lewisburg WV for the 'Wheels of Hope' bike ride. No photos of the ride but a couple from a stop at Humpback Bridge in Callaghan Va.

As this is crazy season, I have almost no personal shots but I wanted to share a couple wedding photos I just took. I'm really pleased with the "green" one.

VERY NICE so far, always impressive from the usual suspects and new faces around here.

Funny I sent a few samples to the bride including these and she picked that as her favourite as well. I was really happy with the green one and thought it was one of my better shots this summer. What the heck do I know/ Just keep shooting I guess...

Thanks for the comments.

Went to a bunch of concerts over the last week. here's a couple of my favorites:

The band is The Offspring:



Nick Hexum of 311:




Wasn't able to get through security for the last concert...apparently you aren't allowed to take in "professional" cameras. WTF? I'm not a professional!
