OK more cold weather shots. Sorry but that's all I could get that day...

Blue Jay on my bird feeder, snowflake on his head and sleet falling in the background



Mailboxes around the corner



Red Bellied Woodpecker. More sleet falling, and on his head and beak, sitting in snow... yeah I was miserable...

My first post in the K-30 thread, I bought this camera used with street shoot in mind and this is the first time I used it for such purpose




And surprisingly, it seems to be continuing the theme from BigJPR's post from above somehow...
I wish I could have gotten a head peeking out of the tent. But I didn't knock the door and wasn't about to

Love your photo and the tonality of the greys. Poor guy with suitcase out and all.

I'm not sure I have the right to call our weather brutal but I sure am tired of the cold and white stuff.
Tell me about it. We still have snow from the storm in the photograph, and that was on the 2nd!!!!

Great capture!
Sad but powerful.
Thanks! I am getting better at them moments. I was lucky that this dude was creeping behind me on this trail and I shot 1 frame where it was just the tent, he passed by and I was going to keep on, but then I saw the frame and 1 more click and it was over. I got to get better at getting all I want in a frame, this was heavily cropped, still I am glad it has gotten the attention here, in flickr and on the book.

Thanks! feel free to do that. How a song can become a classic without anybody knowing/listening to it. Feel free my friend, I always do the same with photographs that intrigue me.

BTW this is the other shot I got from the day I saw the tent on the snow storm. Since then I was able to speak to the person inside the tent as I was curious on the story that got him where he is at today. I have 2 images in a set on Flickr with another one coming tonight, but I already put on the description of the set his story. Pardon the grammar, but bear with it and you may be amazed how much some people through on our own backyards. This is the second of the images of the tent.

A very common subject, but I was happy with the result (looks really good when printed):

I for one am amazed at most of these shots. The skill of the individual photographer shines through, but one cannot but pause upon the realization that all of these shots were taken with a camera body costing under $600, and a large portion with an 1855mm 'kit' lens. Maybe I am biased but I like the Pentax product.

Mines are shot mostly with the kit 18-55mm and some with my... wait for it... breathing in... SuperMultiCoatedTakumar 50mm f/1.4 uffffffffff there! Amazing quality from all of these photographers let's everybody know that most Pentax products have to be super user friendly.

Love this, just wished you panned a little bit more to the left so the flower/sculpture was where the light next to it is now. That way we get more of the main building behind the sculpture. But that's just me. Wonderful, I hope you had fun with it, as I have been having fun with it also!

This is the third and last image of the series from the Ricardo story. A couple of days back I posted a picture with the subject being a tent in a snow storm, cause quite a stir within my FB friends and friends of friends so I decided to follow it up and make like I was a reporter and get his story out there (With his permission of course). Click the image to go to it on Flickr, it's part of a set called Ricardo. On the page set, I posted his story from my recollection of a 15-20 minute talk I had with him yesterday. Please read it and let me know what you think here or there if you use flickr. Thanks to all my Pentaxians.

i am Puertorican not Mexican, he was correct in calling me Jose for the neutral criticism I gave him a couple of post back. Yeah Pepe, not all about you! Of course I am just teasing on that one ok! Don't take it personal or nothing ok! lol

C'mon ILLmatic say something to Pepe he was polite and said "you are welcome" to you! Still teasing... Have to make sure because some things don't translate too good over the interwebs!
