February flowers in Expo’70 Memorial Park

Osaka is getting colorful day by day with flowers.  I went to the Expo’70 Memorial Park to shoot February flowers with PENTAX K-5.  Shooting colorful flowers is one reason and another reason is learning many functional buttons on K-5.  As a matter of fact, I was the main photographer for wedding party of my friends’ in the evening of same day.  I needed to practice which finger can set what function as soon as possible, hahaha.  Anyway, I like to share colorful flowers in Osaka in February with you.
