Potw #4
Posted By: Peter Zack, 03-31-2008, 05:09 PM

Picture of the Week #4. We seem to be a good roll with these.
Spring is getting close for some and the weather seems good "Down Under" and in the EU. Post up everyone.
Here's the link to the first POTW: Potw #1 https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/mini-challenges-games/22484-potw-1-a.html
to give you an idea of how this works.
The rules are simple:
1) No theme just your favourite stuff.
2) lets keep it to about 4-6 images just so the thread doesn't get too big each week
3) Any Pentax camera is fine, film, P&S, DSLR (or Samsung DSLR)
4) Runs for 7 days March 30th to April 6th
5)Enter anything you shot last week or this current week until the thread closes.
Next Sunday I'll pick a host for the next week from the entries.

I'll start and there wasn't much time for the camera this week.

Resemble anyone's Boss??


Not a great shot or anything, but I had to go in to work for a while sunday late afternoon and this guy was deciding if it was worth the effort to fly over the fence. As soon as I got out of my truck he went.

Here is some Random Stuff

I took out my 50 f1.7 for most of these - have not shot with that in a long time it's a keeper

For the last 5 months at least this is the message that greets me in the car - Ice possible thanks !!!
[IMGWIDEleft]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3157/2379336852_05ee93e6d7_b.jpg[/IMGWIDEleft]

And speaking of my car here are a couple of shots I like
[IMGWIDEleft]http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3104/2379336716_5489f68a09_b.jpg[/IMGWIDEleft]
Refelction off the roof
[IMGWIDEleft]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2102/2378499773_920c9bc02f_b.jpg[/IMGWIDEleft]

And speaking of what I like and what I don't like here is a combo - I love Tim Hortonís ... and I hate the price of Gas! (Notice in the first picture premium fuel only add $0.10) and for our American Cousins that is per Liter (there are approx 3.8 liters in a USD Gallon) And yeah I know it is more expensive in other areas of Canada but Damn Alberta has as much Oil as Saudi !!!
[IMGWIDEleft]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2019/2379336950_f589aa8ecb_b.jpg[/IMGWIDEleft]

And Finally this one I call On Frozen Pond[IMGWIDEleft]http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2119/2379336562_ab9d55fd03_b.jpg[/IMGWIDEleft]

Well that is my story for today - that is why my wife calls me a Random Sh*& Photographer

That goose cracks me up. How can he look so comfortable sitting on a sheet of ice?

Maybe he's frozen in the ice and just tries to look nonchalant "I sit here voluntarily just so you know it!" hehe

This appears to be a slower week - I force myself to get out once or twice a week - took a few minutes off today so here we go. Today I strapped on the DA 12-24 and went for a quick walk after supper.

Spring time in Alberta takes a while to get here - the sign says it all

But there are signs of growth

Hopefully soon can get out on the driveway and play a little of this


Let's see some more action come on people post up

I wish I had more to offer here Dave. There's absolutely no sign of spring here yet. 3 snowfalls in the past week and still stinkin' cold. Haven't been overly inspired this week. I hope we see more from others.

Some very nice shots so far and I really like that Web shot Bruce. Very cool.

I feel for ya - I am chomping at the bit here - there are signs slowly but surely - Cabin Fever must be at all time high - you are taking a beating this year for sure - hope the summer brings nothing but sunshine , clam bakes (I sure miss those) and tasty Atlantic Lobsters ummmmmmmmmmmmm
