Welcome to the 584th edition of Picture of the Week (POTW), covering periodperiod 20 January - 2 February 2020. 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.

Hi all!

I managed to get out a bit in Hong Kong yesterday. Part of Hong Kong I've never visited. Both of these were taken with my K-1 Mark II and my 43mm limited...

God and Buddha statues in Wah Fu (there are hundreds of statues; tradition says a graveyard was moved and some people drowned nearby afterwards so people started placing statues to sooth the spirits):



Hong Kong Post Office sign. I've been meaning to take a photo of one of these for a couple of years now...

Thanks for hosting again Nosliwmit. As usual, I like your shots of Hong Kong! Beautiful shots Smoke665 and Prohibitiory. I was in my home town of Port Elizabeth this last weekend, to celebrate with the family and my twin sister, our 60th birthday earlier in January. (there are some 20 of us all born in Dec-January, so we had one big bash). A visit to Addo Elephant National Park is obligatory, A few shots from there. Found this beautiful Weevil


And nice to watch this Jackal play around with a pile of dried out elephant dung


Plenty of Zebra there.


And Elephants


At one of the parks there


And me putting up my feet for the last few hours I was there


And pushing it over the limit, one more. A shot from the airplane

Got to take a helicopter tour of the Verde River watershed in AZ for work this week and obviously took advantage of the opportunity to get some cool aerial shots.

Flying over Sedona


And some fun shots looking down at things...

Thanks so much!
Well, yes, and no. A little research mentioned that some are used for economic reasons i.e. to control invasive plants that are considered pests etc.

Noel: I just can't believe how much detail you are able to abstract out of your pictures. This batch, even the red spotted bug, are awesome. Thank you aaacb for hosting again.....great light, balance and proper technique. Well done. aaacb
