POTW #631 Covering Period 13 June through 19 June 2021
Posted By: smf, 06-16-2021, 08:08 AM

Welcome to the 631st edition of Pictures of the Week (POTW), covering the period June13-June 19, 2021. Let's see what you have been shooting.

I am starting this thread with three of the images I previously posted at Facebook. During the pandemic I have been posting photos to give friends and relatives something to which they could look forward. These three images were captured with my monopd-mounted Pentax K-S2 and an older Pentax 100mm macro lens.

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.

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.

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

If the thread doesn't start, please contact the host, via PM.

Time and weather

Glad I grabbed a couple of shots before the cloud cover came and muted the light.

Thanks for restarting this series. It's a bit out of the date range by 10 days, but this is the most recent with a qualifying camera (gr iii)



Now I need to take some photos and I'll update

Hi all. Thanks for starting the thread Stu! Looks like good participation so far...

I'm leaving Hong Kong this evening after a fantastic 4.5 year assignment here. Dublin's next and I look forward to taking a lot of photos there. I wandered around HK a bit last weekend and took some photos. There are unlimited photo opportunities here and I will miss it!
