Posted By: aaacb, 03-03-2019, 08:37 PM

Welcome to the 539th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 25 February - 10 March 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.

Things You Notice Through a Lens

1. Magazine array on a sofa
2. Power Station Next to Housing (wouldn't want that in my back yard)
3. Myriad of Geometric Shapes on a Home Facade.

Photos from a nice break in the clouds during a hike. When we got to the summit of Mt Eisenhower it was very cloudy, but shortly after starting to go down some of the clouds went away to reveal these views.

It was snowing, and I like that there are some snowflakes visible in both photos

Since I exchanged my K5 for a second K3. I rediscovered what a fantastic lens the DA* 50-135 is.
Today i used it to capture a waterspirit. But you will have to look very closely to find it.

Thanks for hosting this week aaacb. Some fab stuff here already. Eva has come back down to earth and tempting us throw out whatever diet we are on . aaacb, do you have the color version of the first shot! Its FAB, but would like to see the color version.
A horrible day today, got caught in horrible traffic. and hail and rain did not help. But i had some fun in the Garden of the shelter where I work, so these are from today. I'll post some others from the rest of the week later.
WPRESTO has blessed me with the 150 and 250 Raynox lenses, and I have been trying out the 250.

Here you go, I appreciate the kind comments. I see the point of the color version, but there is so little color in that image that I still lean towards the mono version.

A few shots from my backyard blind this cold March...

We are having a gruelling winter in Ontario this year, with deep snow and -20C most nights, so it's hard to get out and about much. I've been photographing some visitors to my backyard, using a blind, my new K-S2, and a 135 mm Takumar manual lens...

I agree! The B&W version is very dramatic. Great photo!

Happy Sunday! I'm joining this party a little late this week. Here are a few I've taken since last weekend.

Yesterday I went out with a photo group looking for reflections. The first two are from that outing.

I get a kick out of the old neon signs around town. I don't know if the sign in photo #3 still works.

#4 is my favorite ramen shop in Wan Chai.
