Welcome to the 564th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 26th Aug - 8th 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.


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.

Thanks to Eva for hosting POTW for the last couple of weeks, and while she is off for a well deserved holiday, i'll take on the responsibility of hosting for a couple of weeks. I visited Delta Park yesterday, a municipal park and recreation facility, with cycle routes. These are a few of the shots i took. Super happy to see the Katydid, as it meansthe insects are returning.

Thanks for starting us off Noel! I love the razor-wire, the spider and the cricket.

While my profile says I live in Hong Kong, I actually live on Lantau Island, which, until recently, was somewhat isolated from the unrest in HK. This weekend my wife and I stayed in a hotel in the Central district and we got to see things a little more closely. On Saturday we walked with the protesters for a little while. These were not violent hooligans; it was college kids, old folks, families, people (well, at least person) in wheelchairs, etc. It was a humbling experience.

Photos 1 through 4 are all protest-related. 5 is a historic building that currently houses a restaurant but was a pawn shop for many years.

If you haven't heard of 52 Frames, I wrote a little piece about it on my website, and I hope to continue doing so for as long as I participate in the effort.

Here's my entry for last week. Sundays are submission days for me and they fall right on the line for this POTW series.

52Frames: Distortion
This week's challenge was "distortion," so I put a plastic bag with a hole in it over my lens.

Thanks very much to Noel for hosting and to jcdoss for the information about 52 Frames.

Below are a few images from my most recent visit to a small wetland approximately 15 minutes from my home at Midland, Michigan.
I like to go there before sunset and watch great egrets fly in and roost.

The lens is an older 100-300mm. The K-S2 is on a monopod.The tight shot of the egrets with one great blue heron was captured at ISO 2500, 1/200, f/5.6.

Comments and criticism of my images are most welcome.

Best wishes to all, and thanks very much for posting.
