Welcome to Picture of the Week 06/01/09 - 06/14/09 #65

Another great POTW last week. Lots of participation and some excellent images. Nice to see everyone's stuff and so many of you willing to share. Doesn't matter if it's a snap shot of the kids or a masterpiece that will make you famous. We wanna see what's been in your viewfinder.

You can see last weeks POTW here.

All of the past POTW's are now linked below under the name of the host. So it's easy to go back and view some past weeks.
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 : Sunday 05/24/09 to Sunday 06/07/09. Enter anything you shot last week or during this current week until the thread closes.

So to get things started. All I have so far is some shots from yesterday at my step son's 5Km road race. His teacher is big on getting the kids active and had a weekly exercise program (games like Basketball and Rugby) each week and finished off with this road race.

So a few from the run:
First my step son:

Everything was shot with the FA*300mm and I was really happy with how it tracked and focused on the K10D. Short FL shots were done with the Sigma 105mm macro (the Harley) One fine and sharp lens.

The best shots (there were over 200) have been submitted to the local paper and we'll see if they publish the shots and article.
