POTW # 569-covering period 30th Sept -13th October 2019
Posted By: noelcmn, 10-07-2019, 04:36 AM

Welcome to the 569th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering 30rd Sept - 13th October 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, 539-547 aaacb, Eva 548-563.

And kicking us off.

People see you with a Camera and Tripod, and you quickly get asked - "how much do you charge for photos?" 3 times that happened yesterday at Florida Lake. These are them strangers. ANd its done for free, provided they have an email address.






An unexpected bonus from that visit- Giant Kingfisher. Which I just managed to snap before it flew off.


And I did a Baptism yesterday, with this young fellow. He seems to like crying- did it during the baptism, as well as later with the family lunch to which I was invited.

Thanks for hosting again, Noel, and for the delightful portraits!

The photos below are from Dahlia Hill (which is planted and tended by volunteers) and from Whiting Forest and Dow Gardens all in Midland, Michigan. The camera is a K-S2.
