POTW #623 - January 3, 2021 to January 23, 2021
Posted By: nosliwmit, 01-17-2021, 06:54 PM

I'm really late starting this thread! We'll expand this POTW to include the three-week period beginning 3 January.

Welcome to the 623rd edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period January 3 to January 23. Let's see what you have been shooting.

POTW is a great spot to show off six or fewer shots you take or are editing within the thread's date range.
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.

Thanks very much to all previous hosts and to people who have posted images!

Here are a few from me. I had a day to wander around Hong Kong last week and the weather was fantastic. The first two were taken with my DA15 Ltd in crop mode and the rest were with my FA43 Ltd. All taken with my K-1 Mk II.

An old store-front. Slightly excessive post-processing on this one:

A hardware store:

An iconic Hong Kong letter box at a local temple:

A sidewalk shrine:

New art for a new year:

Nice work capturing those blues. The first photo is amazing , in its darkness. The second is an interesting isolation and framing. Very nice.

Thanks for hosting again, nosliwmit. You know I love all your photos of Hong Kong! And that's a WOW photo aaacb. A quick contribution from me.

We've been having some spectacular sunsets of late

Lots of rain too

Took the youth on a hike to a Game Reserve on the 5th, about 50 km form Johannesburg, Incredible landscapes there.

I thought it might be time to join POTW again after some time of absence.

These photos are all taken within a 17,5 minutes radius around the house. Due to health reasons (both me and my wife) I am not getting any further away.

Hi all!

Sorry I've been such a slug lately. This was a good POTW.

Great collection Noel. I'm especially fond of #4. Gorgeous!

Thanks for joining us! Great shots. I really like #1 and I love the bird's expression in #3.

I'm a week late again - seems to be a pattern. I'll get the next POTW going now.
