Day 23: Bokeh

32 Day Photo Challenge. Day 23: Bokeh

Unless you’re a photographer, you’ve probably never heard of bokeh. Bokeh is the out of focus circular formations caused by light in your background. It is created by using a long lens with the subject up close, a wide open camera lens (mine was at f/2.8), and the background far away so that it causes the light to diffuse. There’s probably a much better way to describe it, and certainly much better examples than the one I am showing you here, but what you have to remember is that I look at my challenge word every day and try to complete it that day … much of the time doing it between the 10th and 11th hour before midnight after all the other things of the day are done. Today was no different with the kids and grandkids over for the BSU game. At 6:00, the rest of the Mousers came over for a little fun pre-Christmas celebration. Sydney ended up spending the night, so after everyone left and the kitchen was clean I quickly taped up a set of white lights on the fireplace, moved the footrest to the front of the living room, asked my more than willing participant to take a seat, and here you have “bokeh” along with the cutest little almost three year old this side of the city. On a side note when she went to bed and said her prayers, this is how it went: “Dear Jesus, thank you that I got to have two pieces of candy today. Thank you that MJ comed over. Thank you that everybody comed over. Amen.” I think Jesus was probably smiling really big. Merry Christmas!
