Welcome to the 563 (POTW), covering 19 Aug - 2 Sept 2019
Posted By: eva, 08-26-2019, 03:37 AM

Welcome to the 563 edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 19 Aug - 2 Sept 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, I'm liking your street shots, especially that first one- its FAB! Been mostly stuck at home as my vehicle needs some repairs.
This one just outside the time frame.






I was able to get to Zoo Lake yesterday, courtesy of a congregant, and wanted to capture these forks, as part of another project. Its part of a commissioned work of art, in the form of a fish, and made from utensils (Spoons, knives, forks, teaspoons) welded together. This is the tail


Spring is here


Some people were celebrating their birthdays

Thanks for hosting again, Eva. I agree with Noel that your first street shot is excellent.
Bravo on your images, Noel.
Below are some of my images from an evening shoot at Dahlia Hill in Midland, Michigan. Details on that garden — planted and maintained by volunteers are at Dahlia Hill - unlike any other dahlia garden
The camera is a monopod-mounted K-S2. The last image was captured with a Lensbaby Sol 45. Others were captured with a Takumar-F 28-80 1:3.5-4.5. (Perhaps a Raynox 150 was added for one or more of the images.
Best wishes!

Eva: thank you for posting again, and my theme is late summer in the Northeast U.S. looking at "Flora & Fauna" in and around my Golf Club....Scotland Run (WIlliamstown, NJ)
(The bug was especially for Noel: he is the 'bug man'--hope he approves) (EXIF info has the camera and lens data)

I agree with both points!

Merv-O's butterfly is also a beauty.

Not much from me today. A few B&W shots from around HK. Social commentary about shark fin soup, a statue of "comfort women" (women (e.g. from Korea and Hong Kong) forced into sexual slavery by the Japanese military in WWII) and an Elvis sighting!

Thank you for the compliment....I was fooling around with a 4/3rds format (Olympus) and took that with a M. Zuiko zoom lens.
