Welcome to the 557 (POTW), covering 8 July - 22 July 2019
Posted By: eva, 07-15-2019, 08:36 AM

Welcome to the 557 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 8July - 22 July 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. Here are the records of recent POTW thread hosts: 390-406 smf, 407-408ramseybuckeye, 409-411 stubyles, 412-423 SD_Bob, 424-427 dave kitson 428-451 smf 452, 453, 454 StephenHampshire 455 Aslyfox, 456 StepehenHampshire, 457-466 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, 502-505 Eva, 506-525 Vaskebjorn, 526-538 noelcmn, 539-545 aaacb

Greetings Eva et. al.!

Here are a few from my week.

Some night shots of Hong Kong, some birds I saw at my neighbor's house (I've only seen these guys once in my neighborhood), and a gorgeous lizard of some sort that I've seen off and on for the past couple of weeks on my walk home from work. I finally had time to run home and grab the camera. Not only was it still there but it posed nicely for me.

Thanks for hosting again Eva, I like those Kestel shots, particularly the last one! Nosliwmit as always I love your shots of Hong Kong, and that lizard is gorgeous.
A contribution from me, before my week gets busy.
Monday Morning the 8th was my last day of my holiday in Port Elizabeth, and I was up early to try and get a sunrise at the Donkin Memorial and Lighthouse precinct. My entry in the weekly challenge.


Adjoining the precinct is the historic King Edward Hotel, and I practised some night shooting


Back in Johannesburg I found some more Street Art






And when you struggle for an image for the Daily In Challenge, the barbed/razor fence comes in handy

I have are these two shots of clouds with the gr iii. I used a polarizer and tried to match the color patterns with the clouds. If I get to develop/scan a roll of tmax, I'll upload some more, or perhaps next week

That's an interesting effect aaacb! - thanks again for hosting Eva. My photos this week were mostly taken with my K5 and a Porst (Enna Munchen) Weitwinkel 35mm f3.5, except the last where I used the Super Tak 35mm f3.5:









I may not have much more to post for a while as the difficulties associated with home renovations are taking over all my spare time!
