Potw#46 : 1/18/09 - 2/1/09
Posted By: Rense, 01-26-2009, 05:31 AM

Welcome to POTW #46, 1/18/09 - 2/1/09

After de overwhelming invitation by Daacon to start this POTW I feel free to do so .

Rules as before:

1) No theme just your favorite stuff.
2) Let's keep it to about 4-6 images per post just so the thread doesn't get too big each week .
3) Any Pentax camera is fine, film, P&S, DSLR (or Samsung DSLR)
4) Date : Sunday1/18/09 - Sunday 2/1/09
5) Enter anything you shot last week or this current week until the thread closes.

Is this the correct date range? It seems to overlap with the last POTW thread

Yes it is - the POTW spans two weeks so that gives eveyone more oppertunity to post shots

In that case.... Here is a picture that I posted in this week's Project 52 thread. I'll probably be putting up a couple more photos before the range ends

ISO: 200 - Exposure: 1/3200 sec - Aperture: 2.8 - Focal Length: 105mm

Thanks Dayah! I too am eagerly awaiting a FA501.4 in the mail. I traded the 50mm Macro in my signature for it and now I can't wait until it arrives!

Rense, thanks for hosting, nice photos, love the second last!
Dave, the first ice photo is great for it's backlit-dark-background beauty!
MrApollinax, your "simplicity"-entry is great!
dayah, funny how the 50-images are always recognizable, these are great!

This is from last weekend

Daacon - great shots, I like especially the first one.
MrAppolinax - it's great and simple!
Dayah - I like these shots. You have to clean your office....;-)
Georg - that's a nice one. Lots of snow, and I think it's not always easy to shoot in these white surroundings!

Here are a few I took this past weekend. Had some snow here in St. Louis. The others were taken at the Lake of the Ozarks. First three taken using 55mm 1.7 Sears and last is 18-55 kit.

Dave , your posts really make me want to buy my kids some long johns pull my skis out of the attic and take a vacation.

Was playing with the macro funtion on my F35-80. This lens seems to be considered as the biggest junk lens pentax has ever made , but because it cost me almost nothing I don't mind taking it out on the sand. All of the beach pics I've posted here were with this lens and honestly I don't think it is that terrible.

Thanks Dave. Those particular flowers are in the office complex where I work. They were planted just last week. Just in time for me to try out the new 105mm macro.
