Picture of the Week (POTW) # 512 - Covering 15 August to 28 August 2018
Posted By: Vaskebjorn, 08-22-2018, 04:58 AM

Welcome to the 512th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 15 August to 28 August 2018.

This week I will include some pictures in the kick-off as do not have any photos yet that qualify. 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, 506-512 Vaskebjorn

Thanks for hosting again Vaskebjorn, such impressive stuff already, starting with our host, and ending with that delectable shot of Nobody.
A contribution from me
A fellow that decided Zoo Lake was a good spot to dry out his sneakers


Johannesburg, as with so many other cities, has a serious Rat infestation problem, and they are doing well at Zoo Lake. There was a story, true one, of the Johannesburg Municipality attempting to address the problem, and duly introduced several Barn Owls around some suburbs, only to have them killed or chased away, as these birds are considered an ill omen by local cultures. A sad superstition that has only resulted in an increase. Owls, Barn Owls in particular, are highly successful hunters of rodents, and the record (if I remember correctly, is 24 mice in an hour! Imagine what it could have meant! Anyway, the Rats at Zoo Lake have it good.


Hopefully the dragons will also do well




A young boy that was happy to smile for the camera


And I will usually stop when I see some street art- this one particularly nice


And a splash of red

Thanks for posting to everyone (sofar). These are all very beautiful photos. There is one that is my favorite, but as this is not a contest i will keep it secret. I might be inclined to reveal it afterwards though.
But to everyone that has not posted 6 yet or none at all, please post more photos as you can never see enough good photos.
