Current POTW Winner | Past POTW Winners

We're always amused when a theme crops up in any given batch of "Picture of the Week" entries. Since (presumably), our dozens of submitters aren't in cahoots, it's interesting to note when a large percentage of our photo entries share a similar feature. Some weeks, for example, we'll get a selection that's heavy on warbirds or hot-air balloons or (yes, it's happened) pilots in funny hats.

This week, there was only one clear theme almost every picture we considered for the top spot left us asking, "Now what's the story on that?" Some we could figure out, but others left us guessing and making up our own fantastic back stories. You'll see what we mean when you dive into this week's top submissions but first, take a gander at our Official-AVweb-baseball-hat-winning photo from Jeffrey Burke of San Francisco. Ironically, his winning submission is the only one that didn't inspire us to concoct a tale ... .

"Angels at the Gate / Close Call"
We received so many great photos from Jeffrey Burke
San Francisco, California that we just had to sneak two
of them into this week's edition of "POTW." Both photos of
the Navy's legendary Blue Angels were taken during Fleet Week,
and (for the camera buffs), Jeff used a Canon EOS 1-D
Mark II 400mm camera F2.8 with 2x teleconverter.
Your baseball cap is on the way, Jeff!
