Day 20: Bokeh

Lesson from this challenge day:
I like things in focus.  I like as much as possible in mostly focused.  As in, even things in the background.  Rarely ever do I purposely shoot the background in bokeh style.  I like the background to be fuzzy, but not so out of focus you can't tell what you're looking at.

I actually had to look up how to shoot a bokeh shot for this challenge.  Due to my inferiority in this department, I started to look into some old photos that I've taken to see if I've ever even accidentally got a bokeh shot.  This was also when the lesson of the challenge day was realized......

The only old shot I could find that would be considered "Bokeh".  This was from brunch with Mr. Curly Sweatervest and Shoulda Been a Cowgirl

I'm not sure if the top is considered bokeh or not, but it's out of focus, which was on purpose.  
What do you think, is the 2nd photo Bokeh?

  1. I think the second photo is just fine for Bokeh (can't say that with out giggling just a bit.) Again, I argue that this is simply depth of field with a fancy name attached to it, but I'm old and cranky and didn't get my mini-wheats this morning.
