I think I like this version the best. Probably the best version of the Minolta 35mm focal length lenses. Of course everyones taste in Bokeh is subjective. Smile
I still have a few more Minolta 35's to get, but here is where I started testing them.

Love the photos Wolverine. Just a quick question.

Is this Alka?

The reason I ask is because my dad is from Sinj.

The last photo is very nicely captured as well.

Croatian horse (which I can't remember the name of) with the flag in the background. Very stylish! Cool Very Happy

no, this is changing of the guards at Zagreb Upper Town, a show for the tourists. on Sundays guards are posted at the entrance to the St.Mark's chuch (that's where i took these), and every hour (i think) there is a ritual with horseman and a squad of soldiers exchanging guards.

Alka is held in August in Sinj.

i think these type of horses are called "arac" because of the spots on it, i don't know if they are Croatian breed
building in the background where the flag is hanging is Croatian Parlament.

after they change guards at this place they go to the main square (Jelacic square) and change guards posted at the foot of the statue of Ban Jelacic there.
also interesting spot for photos at Upper Town are Stone Gates (Kamenita vrata) one remaining Upper Town gates, where people come to pray and light candles (lighting candles is time limited by working hours of candle shop in the Stone Gate, run by nuns)

I think the name of the horse has an Austrian name. Lippissan or something like that. The word "arac" is probably a slang term derived from "aran." I had an old WWII veteran tell me this stuff along time ago. He has passed since.

As for Ban Jelacic, I actually know a direct descendant that lives here in Sydney and yes his surname is the same.

All very interesting stuff so thanks for sharing Wolverine.

Tomislav.
