Photo Challenge #52 / Bokeh

20191219ma_3058“Christmas Lights” / Theme: Bokeh

A little about this photo…

The final photo of the year! I had a few choices but ultimately decided on this prompt. Basically, I wanted to force myself photographically to create that beautiful bokeh background. And what better bokeh-subject than the Christmas tree! Of course, since the photo is all about lights, I decided to put a candle in the foreground…

See you next year!

{Edited to add: For those of you who might be wondering what the word “bokeh” means… It’s actually a Japanese word that means “blur”. But it’s an intentional blur. Beautiful blur!}
