I have been working on my photography. I was looking at the red and orange leaf. I spotted it in the vast area that is my back yard. An expanse where everything is in shades of gold and brown.

I worked and worked to get the bokeh to appear, and to have everything besides the orange and red leaf out of focus. But for some reason, the focus kept shifting to something at the top.

Then, as I pressed the shutter, I realized that there was a color that did not occur naturally in my yard. At least, it did not grow on any trees in my backyard. It didn't grow on any trees or fall off any trees, nor did it spring forth from the dirt. So it wasn't ivy. Or dirt. That about covers what's in my backyard.

That's when I realized:

The bokeh never stood a chance.


  1. Oh..
    you have one of those TOO!

  2. Ha! That's funny. You should try a macro lens. I get plenty of bokeh on mine.
