Picture of the Week (POTW) # 507 - Covering 26 June to 16 July 2018
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 07-03-2018, 05:13 AM

Welcome to the 507 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 26 June to 16 July 2018.
This time one week longer to post your photos as I will be in hospital next week.

I will not include any pictures in the kick-off as do not have any photos yet that qualify. But don’t let that stop any of you. I liked last weeks hosting a lot seeing all these marvelous photos and I am confident this time there will be beautiful ones to.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range. In other words, you can post your shots from this week AND last week.

To post your great photos, just hit reply and attach away.

Feel free to start immediately.

Please:

• consider including in your post any special circumstances or tips on technique or equipment which might be interesting to others.

• identify your camera and lens if that information is easily available to you.

And please invite other Pentaxians to join us.

Some rules:
1) No theme, just post your favorite pix
2) Six or fewer images per person per thread to prevent thread bloat
3) Any Pentax, Ricoh or Samsung camera, film or digital

The current host will invite a new host via Private Message (PM), but if you are interested and willing to host POTW, please send me a PM, before I contact others.

If possible, the new thread will be linked to the previous one. If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390 smf, 391 smf, 392 smf, 393 smf, 394 smf, 395 smf, 396 smf, 397 smf, 398 smf, 399 smf, 400 smf, 401 smf, 402 smf, 403 smf, 404 smf, 405 smf, 406 smf,407 ramseybuckeye, 408 ramseybuckeye, 409 stubyles, 410 stubyles, 411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457 noelcmn, 458 noelcmn, 459 noelcmn, 460 noelcmn, 461 noelcmn, 462 noelcmn, 463 noelcmn, 464 noelcmn, 465 noelcmn, 466 noelcmn, 467 Aslyfox, 469-470 aaacb 471 Madmathmind, 472 Madmathmind, 473 Eva, 474 rjbrett, 475 Aslyfox, 476 - 485 noelcmn, 486 - 488 rjbrett, 489 clackers, 490 - 498 rjbrett, 499 StephenHampshire 500 smf, 501 StephenHampshire, 502 Eva, 503, Eva, 504 Eva, 505 Eva, 506 Vaskebjorn

Hi all. Last Monday was the 21st anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from the UK to China. It was a rainy weekend but there were some celebratory activities at Victoria Park, including demonstrations of dragon costumes and the people that perform in them. There was a group of boys practicing without costumes and it was entertaining to watch for a while. The dragon was a static display. It's a two-person costume, which is why the boys were practicing in pairs. All taken with my K-5 and 70mm Ltd.

The Ana Desetnica festival, held at various outdoor venues across Ljubljana, showcases contemporary trends in street theatre creativity.
The festival is remarkable for its well-defined artistic concept and its organizers' efforts towards complementing the vibrancy of city life in Ljubljana with the vibrancy of the festival.

Some pictures from me. The first one is Boeing 787 of LOT Polish Airlines wet landing, the second one is Boeing 777 of Emirates Airlines taxing to the runway, third one makes me angry because I think the photographer is far too offensive taking pictures of romanian gipsy child performing on the street to collect some money and finally the fourth one shows young lady and her "street office"

The cross-posted image was captured yesterday with my RMC Tokina 500mm mirror lens on my Pentax K-S2.

Thanks for hosting Vaskebjorn, and what a feast for the eyes in this weeks POTW. We are rocking, even if I am somewhat envious at all these lovely summer pics and festivals. Welcome Shinigami, to PF and POTW In particular. Hope we see a lot more of you here! Its been rather cold, and even wet over the last week, with bits of sunshine in between. Here's a contribution from me.
A pair of Spotted Eagle Owls reside in a local park- Delta Park- which I can go and photograph just about anytime I want, its about 10 km from where I live. They have been harassed by some crows, so have taken to hiding in some of the trees. I found them, but so well camouflaged, I had to scrape the bark of the tree with my tripod to get a reaction out of one. Hand held with the K-30 and Sigma 170-500mm lens. Makes for tired arms and stiff neck- the price of photography


And at the same spot, setting sun provided some nice backlighting


Som street art to add to my already large collection


A tower, whose purpose of existence is unknown


Poor weather means staying indoors, and experimenting will all kinds of things
