Interesting set, kshapero. The little girl and her expression are priceless.

Cipher, I've dug up some oldies to fit your "all's Fair" theme.
These were both taken at the Kansas State Fair Carnival in 2013, with the Panasonic FZ150, (exif data seems MIA after computer rebuild)

A tribute to Rupert. He had such wit and wisdom to share along with Otis and company. I will miss him.

Pentax-F 50mm F1.7 - Lens hood
Posted By chemtech
Replies: 13

I agree with Haris F1.

A small rubber hood, 49mm size are low cost and collapse into a low profile for storage.

My F 50mm F1.7 AF had a slight accident and the top rim had a small piece chip out.
The rubber hood I have, has an inner thread and this is helpful for using filters, and protecting the damaged rim.

Great theme, kwb! It took a while but I found one that might work. It's older and been cropped for a different project.

Point and Shoot Competition #117 - Geometry

Thank you, for the language interpretation! I have discovered a mystery.

I did some research and found this: Soviet Spacecraft Pennants

it seems this sphere could have been made for the Luna I mission.

Link to my fuzzy description pic: http:///www.pentaxforums.com/forums/members/27077-chemtech/albums/12094-fuzz...ture112595.jpg

The wording of the description could be interpreted as" like" the one from the Luna II mission.

Several sites that have a sphere pic from the Luna II mission show the January date. Hmmmm.

In the near future I'll check out the one at the Eisenhower Center. I'm curious which one Khrushchev brought with him to give the President.

Pentax Q7 , 01 lens, F2.8 1/125 sec, ISO 400. Night HDR mode.

3. Red Thunder: the RD-107 Rocket engine. Pentax Q7, 01 lens, 1/13 sec, F1.9 ISO 3200, Night HDR mode.
