World Pentax Weekend

Today has been an absolutely lovely day, so when I got an email from here telling me about the "World Pentax Day" {actually a three day weekend starting today}, my first thought was that all cameras, not just all geographic areas, should be represented. South Bend owes its existence - on the St Joseph River {which flows into Lake Michigan and thence to all points north} at the natural point to portage to the Kankakee River {which flows into the Mississippi River and thence to all points south} - as well as its name {at the southernmost point on the river} - to the St Joseph River, so a natural way to tell the story of my home is to take pictures along the river. Thus, I went to a scenic area along the river and took some pictures with my Q-7.










While doing that, I noticed a new family of geese. I didn't have my birding kit with me, but after lunch I came back and took some pictures of the geese also {from far enough away not to disturb the highly protective parents}




Later, I tried to post a picture at the "World Pentax Day" site - the system repeated the eligibility rules to me and told me to re-examine the EXIF data for my pictures, and to contact the site if I still had issues. I still don't know why these were rejected, so I did contact the site, but I thought I could at least share them with people here and encourage other "Q" family members to include Q images in the WPD collection!

Looks like quite a Spring flow going there. The goose chicks look like they are enjoying some comfort in the grass with the supervision of their mother. Nice pictures.

Nice shots, reh.

I too had a problem uploading to the WPD gallery earlier today and posted about it. Adam replied that he'd made a change and then I was golden. You should try again if you have not yet.

I did eventually receive a reply from PF telling me that they had fixed the problem - apparently they had left in place the screening code from two years ago, which is the last time they did this sort of thing.

I know with absolute certainty that there are people here who produce a much better final product from the "Q" than I do, so again I encourage others to submit entries produced by the "Q' - lets let everyone see what the "Q" can do!

There should be a big red one at the top of the page, but this will work also

And here's the new WPD map. It really makes the event come to life, IMO!

The map is great - just what we needed!
{apparently we need more members in Africa, though}

Thanks for sharing the map Adam.
Thanks
