Bokeh dots

I've always loved polka dots and the other night while out with my camera I discovered how to make bokeh dots.  If you don't know, bokeh is the blur that comes from photographing points of light with the camera out of focus.

I've finally mastered getting this effect with seasonal lights.  Hint: use the macro setting or focus on something close in with the lights in the background.

Here's a selection of holiday dots.

Have you rebounded from the Christmas festivities?  Or are they still continuing?  After three non-stop days of hosting and being hosted, we will have a quiet day tomorrow.  A time to make soup and organize the house.

Hope your holidays were full of love and joy.


  1. Quiet lovely, next years Christmas Card ?

  2. That's an idea Parsnip. I could be inspired by your annual card tradition.

  3. Oh, I like this! You're an artist behind a camera.


I really appreciate your comments.
