Sunday Stills : Bokeh

The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was bokeh.   Simply stated bokeh is the out of focus part of a photo.

Sedum and bokeh Nov 26 2011

This was my best shot outside..the wind was howling like a banshee again yesterday.

How about some summer shots? 

Liatris and Bokeh

Liatris and a bee in August of 2011.

Lupine and bokeh

Lupine with Veronica Blue Bouquet providing the bokeh.   Did you know that bokeh and bouquet are pronounced the same..BOH- kay.

Sometimes I get accidental bokeh.  Like this photo taken in September of 2011.

Sometimes  I get Chance bokeh! 

Roses frosty

Have a great week everyone:)


  1. Beautiful photos, and my English isn't good enough to explain how I find your photos, but I like them...

  2. Excellent! Love the Chance bokeh :-D. Didn't know the pronunciation - thanks.

  3. Great shots....the wind was howling here yesterday too...hard to keep things still or not get dizzy looking through the lens;)

  4. Liked them all. I really like the Lupine shot.

  5. I like the "accidental" bokeh. Always nice to see flowers too, brightens up a grey November day.

  6. I had a similar problem, but luckily it was only a light breeze. Great splash of color (it's currently very gray and pouring).

  7. I love the brown and frost this time of year. I used to be fairly uninspired after the leaves dropped. But I love the seed heads and dried grasses and the strong light. Lovely photos today!

  8. these are BEAUTIFUL shots. i got a bee shot on some thistle in London this year and i was just like jumping up and down all over the place at my accomplishment!

    these are stunning. and yes, i am familiar with accidental bokeh. my bokeh is often just brokeh tho. i need more bokeh training!

  9. Cool shots! You did good, girl. I didn't like any I took so I didn't jump in this time.


  10. Those are really pretty!!! I might like taking more photos with expertise if I had a tutor. I like being taught one-on-one because you can progress faster! As always, thanks for sharing!

  11. Yes when the wind is blowing you have to get so creative. I have photos with my hand it grasping the stem to keep it from whipping back and forth.


I love your comments! I am glad you stopped by! Connie
