Friday Shootouts -- Bokeh

At the very last minute, I realized, I couldn't completely back out of the Friday Shootout.  Plus, I was interested to find out what Bokeh was since I didn't really have a clue.  I may still not really have it.

And I didn't want to use to make fake Bokeh.  After all, there is an old saying:  "Don't fix what isn't bokeh."

So here are three quick ones.  






I'll be back more consistently one of these days.  Miss you all.

  4. Great to have you back Mark. But what the heck is that in the top photo? I love the baby duck in the middle shot but its the top one that has me puzzled.

    Good use of bokeh though.

  6. the gosling is wonderful - he (she?) looks like he is saying 'do I have to?'
    the last though is my fav.... to get those wasps inside a bush shows your master's touch.

  7. Oh yes, love the little duck. It looks like it is paused on the brink, trying to decide between two evils, the unknown in front or the known behind. And I think the last shot is incredible!
    Take care of you!

  14. poor duckling, the picture ahead is so bokeh that he doesn't know what to do. LOL

    So interesting that most of us was really bokeh as to what to do. In fact, in Singapore, we use the term blur very often when expressing we didn't know what to do, BOKEH.
