Posted By: noelcmn, 01-21-2019, 02:30 AM

Welcome to the 533rd edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 14 January 2019 to 27 January 2019. Let's see what you have been shooting these past two weeks.

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.

And starting us off as usual. Did a miniature train journey yesterday, I was the only passenger, and got this shot exiting a tunnel.


And yet another jumper- Just love these little guys


Downtown Johannesburg on Saturday. Looks like it made of buttons.

Thanks for starting us off again. I really like spiders, especially the jumpers. I love the way they follow you with their heads when you move.

We had a fantastic weekend in Hong Kong. Lovely temperatures, clear skies... On Sunday I went to Nan Lian Garden and the Chi Lin Nunnery. Both gorgeous places for photography. These photos were all taken with my new K-1 II. The first four with my D FA 100mm macro and the last with my DA 16-85 (in crop mode; it's still a delightful lens!).

What I do what it's too cold to go outside; I watch BBC Planet earth. And this morning it's 40F and with a feels like 35F. I'm not going outside today either. LOL

Titled, where I'd like to go and what I'd like to shooting.

Fab shots Nosliwmit, I like especially the 4th one, lovely lines.
Photolady- LOL! I like your thinking. We could do with a bit of that here, the heat wave continues, around 37degrees C.

I'll trade ya. This is not our normal weather for time of year here. Some idiot weather man said it was spring like weather, I don't know where he originated from but Florida spring weather isn't in the 60s during the day and 40s at night. It's 70s and 80s. And I sure don't have to wear a coat inside to keep warm nor one outside to keep warm either.

Spotted a large congregation of birds in my neighbors trees (around 20 at one time) while shoveling my driveway. Didn't see the starling at the top until I started to process the raw file. It was very cold out but the tree was in the sun and out of the wind. Lots of puffy feathers.

Robins and a Starling, good job, Tim.


It's supposed to warm up here tomorrow and be about 75, maybe I'll get some bird shots or something to post here.
