POTW # 360 -12th - 26th April 2015
Posted By: Paleo Pete, 04-20-2015, 06:56 PM

Welcome to another round of Picture of the Week. This is edition #359 covering the period 5 April - 19 April 2015.

POTW is a great spot to show off any shots you take in the upcoming week, or last week that you haven't processed until now. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix.
2) 6 or fewer images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big.
3) Any Pentax or Samsung camera, film or digital.

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (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 bluestringer, Moderator via PM.

Here are the records of previous POTW threads: 1 Peter Zack, 2 Eaglerapids, 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, 104 Irishwhite, 105 Ramseybuckeye, 106 xjjohnno, 107 Bumbibop, 108 JeffJS, 109 Tpeace, 110 Nomad, 111 Photolady, 112 rparmar, 113 Peter Zack, 114 casil403, 115 Tamia , 116 JeffJS, 117 bbluesman, 118 Clou, 119 ruggiex, 120 Jimbow007, 121 jmschrie, 122 VaughnA , 123 pop4, 124 casil403, 125 woof, 126 twitch, 127 stevebrot, 128 ohce, 129 jmschrei, 130 photolady, 131 photolady, 132 bbluesman, 133 rparmar, 134 reeftool, 135 reeftool, 136 Oldschool, 137 xjjohonno, 138 KarenH , 139 Rense, 140 daacon, 141 Tamia, 142 JeffJS, 143 bbluesman, 144 fotaki, 145 fotaki, 146 Woof, 147 Bramela, 148 Bramela, 149 Tamia, 150 Nomad, 151 Clou, 152 drugal, 153 rparmar, 154 Nomad, 155 jmschrei, 156 noelcmn, 157 noelcmn, 158 rwfarnell, 159 ramseybuckeye, 160 christophleipzig, 161 JeremytheIndian, 162 SpecialK, 163 emetcalf, 164 emetcalf, 165 stevebrot, 166 rparmar, 167 Mattt, 168 JeffJS, 169 jmschrei, 170 fotaki, 171 xs400, 172 TOUGEFC, 173 TOUGEFC, 174 Warped, 175 MaryAD, 176 Davidw0815, 177 baro-nite, 178 baro-nite, 179 pentaximus, 180 lukulele, 181 lukulele, 182 rob 1234, 183 lukulele, 184 lukulele, 185 pentaximus, 186 ramseybuckeye, 187 ramseybuckeye, 188 StDevious, 189 Free Soul, 190 Clou, 191 brvnara, 192 pentaximus, 193 Noelcmn, 194 Noelcmn 195 GmcarsMAN, 196 jmschreii,197 wolfiegirl, 198 xjjohnno, 199 Arn , 200 Peter Zack, 201 bluestringer, 202 cif, 203 Rollsup, 204 noelcm, 205 Davidw0815, 206 Davidw0815, 207 cif, 208 ramseybuckeye, 209 paulh, 210 Oldschool, 211 SpecialK, 212 mecrox, 213 pentaximus, 215 bramela, 216 jmschrei, 217 Exandr, 218 Noelcmn, 219 Noelcmn, 220 sergiu, 221 sergiu, 222 sergiu, 223 sergiu, 224 sergiu, 225 sergiu, 226 sergiu, 227 sergiu, 228 Davidw08, 229 reeftool, 230 reeftool, 231 cif, 232 mecrox, 233 mecrox, 234 glennbp, 235 glennbp, 236 pentaximus, 237 pentaximus, 238 pentaximus,239 Paul, 240 Nick Nero, 241 Arnold, 242 Arnold, 243 Arnold, 244 Arnold, 245 Nick Nero, 246 ramseybuckeye, 247 ramseybuckeye, 248 Douge, 249 Douge 250 Douge, 251 Dr Orloff, 252 lukulele, 253 lukulele, 254 nosliwmit, 255 nosliwmit, 256 nosliwmit, 257 casil403, 258 casil403, 259 Davidw0815, 260 Davidw0815, 261 ruggiex, 262 ruggiex, 263 mecrox, 264 pentaximus, 265 pentaximus, 266 SpecialK, 267 SpecialK, 268 filoxophy, 269 mecrox, 270 mecrox, 271 mecrox, 272 Paleo Pete, 273 Paleo Pete, 274 geomez, 275 geomez, 276 geomez, 277 mecrox, 278 mecrox, 279 mecrox, 280 Noelcmn, 281 Noelcmn, 282 Noelcmn, 283 Noelcmn, 284 Noelcmn, 285Alkazalsir, 286 StephenHampshire, 287 StephenHampshire, 288 wolfiegirl, 289 Bucfan1234, 290 nosliwmit, 291 wolfiegirl, 292 wolfegirl, 293 ramseybuckeye, 294 ramseybuckeye, 295 josh-fuggle, 296 mattb123, 297 jcdoss, 298 jcdoss, 299 Papa Lazarou, 300 Bucfan1234, 301 Bucfan1234, 302-noelcmn, 303-noelcmn, 304-noelcmn, 305-noelcmn, 306 noelcmn, 307-atupdate, 308-atupdate, 309 mecrox, 310 mecrox, 311 mecrox, 312 Papa Lazarou, 313 Papa Lazarou, 314 lukulele, 315 lukulele, 316 cif, 317 cif, 318 mecrox, 319 mecrox, 320 pentaximus, 321 pentaximus, 322 pentaximus 323 pentaximus 324 StephenHampshire, 325 StephenHampshire, 326 Jessesdad, 327 Catscradle, 328 Catscradle, 329 Catscradle, 330 Catscradle, 331 Imatginarium, 332 Imatginarium 333 Imatginarium 334 Imatginarium 335 Imatginarium 336 Imatginarium 337 Imatginarium 338 Imatginarium 339 Imatginarium 340 Imatginarium, 341 phoenixvision, 342 dave kitson, 343 Wolfeye, 344 Noelpolar, 345 Noelpolar, 346 K David, 347 K Dvid, 348 Hattifnatt, 349 Hattifnatt, 350 TimPGH, 351 TimPGH, 352 Glenn5995, 353-Simon_199, #354-Noelcmn, #355 noelcmn, # 356 noelcmn, #357 noelcmn, #358 noelcmn #359 noelcmn #360 Paleo Pete

OK here we go, sorry to get this off to a late start, I didn't find out about it till this morning and I've been doing yard work all day...as opposed to wandering around taking pictures, which I like a lot better...

It might be a little iffy now and then, sometimes I get disconnected every 2 or 3 minutes, I'm out in the boonies with a flaky internet connection sometimes but I'll try to keep up.

Here are a couple of recent shots to start off with.

Something a little different for me, I'm usually pointing my camera at something that lives in the woods...but the band I'm in played at a local festival of sorts this Saturday, and right in front of us was a small car show.



One member of our attentive audience...



One of our local summer residents, the Summer Tanager. I've never found out where they nest, but they nest in our yard every year. Right now we have several nesting in the yard or in boxes I made - Mockingbird, Carolina Wren, Bluebird, Carolina Chickadee, Northern Cardinal, Blue Jay and several others.



Tiny bees visiting Dandelions. The Dandelions are about 1 inch across, the bees less than inch long...



I just took a few more this morning, may have a couple of keepers to show off later.

I think I got the dates right, if not let me know.

OK let's see some pictures!

Many thanks for hosting, Paleo Pete. Lovely weather meant a great trip to London on Monday where I took a walk through parts of the old East End of London, around Hoxton, Hackney and Brick Lane ...

Wow some cool shots already.

MadMathMind - If that's the lens used, looks like it's a keeper...Something odd about the look on the girl's face in the last shot, but a good shot.

mecrox - I agree, nice tour of London. I like the B&W ones.For some reason B&W works really well for city scenes.

ramseybuckeye - Nice job on that first shot, I can never get those to come out right. I usually end up with the lights blown out...the flower is excellent.

Just photograph! I've kinda decided it's my way into a hobby I've long admired but will never have the sewing talent to participate. I've met a few people as a result of my first foray into it and see my output in cosplay photography greatly expanding! There's a lot of conventions and opportunities here in the Texas Triangle (several per year in Houston alone!).

All of the shots were with the Sigma 18-35. As much of a legend the FA77 is, it is not capable of taking photos of itself. I took that shot for a business card to promote my little hobby. It goes with the cosplay hobby. It makes people feel better to give them a card after hassling them.

As for the last one, I had to pull her face out of shadows. That's part of the strange look. I kinda disturbed her and didn't want to trouble her too much--she seemed a little annoyed that I got her off the park bench to take the photos, so I hurried, put her in a lousy location, and made my life harder.
