Welcome to the 560 (POTW), covering 29 July - 12 Aug 2019
Posted By: eva, 08-06-2019, 02:50 AM

Welcome to the 560 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 29 July - 12 Aug 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

Thanks for hosting again, Eva!

The Nao Santa Maria, a replica of Christopher Columbus' flagship, is on temporary display at Bay City, Michigan, until Aug. 7. Details about the ship are at <a href="https://www.fundacionnaovictoria.org/history-nao-santa-maria/" rel="noreferrer nofollow">www.fundacionnaovictoria.org/history-nao-santa-maria/</a>

The hot air balloons were some of those participating in the Midland (Michigan) Balloon Fest. In one of those images, a ballloon is reflected in a river.

Images were captured with a handheld Pentax K-S2. The ship image was captured with a SMC Pentax DAL 1:3.5-5.6 18-55mm Al.
The balloon images were captured with my SMC Pentax-F 1:4.5-5.6 100-300mm.

I plan to post additional balloon images in the F Club thread, which is here:










Best wishes,
Stu

Thanks for hosting again Eva, that opening shot is a fantastic portrait! And that bird and balloon shot is FAB smf well spotted, great timing! Here's a contribution from me from the various places I have visited - Kloofendal Nature Reserve, a Bird Sanctuary and off course Zoo Lake.




Playing around with some Macro-with the Raynox 250

Ecclectic set of shots....The landscape photos are from Riverwinds Golf Club in W.Deptford, NJ. The grafitti shot is from a dumpster in a alleyway; the fish tank is from my office waiting area. Thanks again to Eva for hosting and hope to see what you all were snapping photos of last week....
