Calla Lily

This one is growing next to our back porch. Took this with my newly repaired 85mm lens.
The lens dropped in our garage when it fell out of one of one of my camera bags which was only a few inches open.
Badly bent the focusing ring and dented the side of the lens. No broken glass even though it took quite a hit.
Took it to George's Camera here in San Diego who sent it to Nikon for me. I had the lens back in 14 days.
My first accident in forty years of photography. Always close your camera bags!

Nikon D700 ,Nikkor 85mm f/1.8D AF
1/2000s f/1.8 at 85.0mm iso200 full exif

The callalilies are in bloom again. :) Love this shot! I had that happen to my 400mm.....really ticked me off. Yep, I make sure there isn't even a crack in mine now.

Looks good to me!

This is very elegant with the lovely 'quiet' colors and uncluttered background. Forty years of photography without an accident is a heck of a record! Glad you got the lens back quickly and based upon this image, it clearly was well worth repairing. V
