I am married with children. My husband and I are doing our best to raise open minded, caring, happy kids. But we are realistic, so we are keeping records of our shortcomings for the therapists they'll surely need in the future.
So this week I learned that Bokeh at it's most basic is an in focus foreground and a blurry background. At it's finest it is a blur of points of light in the background. And to be done properly one really needs a special lens, which lil' ol' me surely does not own. However, I went back through my archives and found a few photos I think qualify as very amateur attempts at creating Bokeh. And at the time I didn't even realize that's what I was doing. Well, I knew I wanted a depth of field, but I had no idea what it was called. Who says you can't teach an old dog? Damn and now I'm the dog again. I gotta stop doing that!

The other word? SO EASY!
My Heart belongs to these goofs.
