Melbourne Royal Botanical Gardens
Camera: K-1 
Posted By: clackers, 06-14-2017, 04:54 PM

Novak Djokovic likes to do a daily walk around the Gardens when he's staying here for the Australian Open in our summer. Not sure his bodyguards are that interested, but a dollar is a dollar, and I guess they can always catch up on their Twitter feeds while he's smelling the roses and communing with nature.

Even now during winter, there's always something to see. K-1 with FA 77 Ltd and DA* 55:

Wonderful work, young man, wonderful work. Thanks so much for sharing. One can easily notice the difference in IQ produced by the K1.

Thanks, Tony, yes, it really brings these two lenses to life.

I'm using a polarizing filter on the DA&55 for the second shot, you should consider such a filter for some of your flowers in direct sunlight ...

Nice shots, mate, but in all honesty I'm more interested in how Ana Ivanovic spends her down time...

She won't stop messaging, mate.

I have to say, "Ana, it's over, darling. That's it. But we'll always have Paris."

What is up with the Slavic gals? Same deal with Milla Jovovich--I'm starting to dread bumping into her anymore; accidently make eye contact and it will be three months of Instagram's.

You've got a better eye than I have Tony. I thought it was the lenses. And the skill of the photographer, of course.

Great shots Clackers. It would be nice if we had the shot of you taken by the woman in the boat.

If I don't cut my calories she'll need a wide angle lens, Des!
