Happy Monday - Bokeh

How exciting is this: Last week's Happy Monday theme was selfies, and I made it into the top 5!!


Exciting!

And now for this week's Happy Monday theme: BOKEH! I spent a couple hours Saturday night with my dad's camera and tripod to get some bokeh shots. I am still learning how to get the light to do what I want it to do, but I captured some beautiful shots. I am just dreaming of the day that I can afford my own DSLR and do photo shoots on my own time, whenever I want.

Here is one of my favorites. In the foreground is a music box with a little train that goes in circles. Or, a little train that USED to do in circles, until I decided (when I was about 6) that I wanted it to go faster.



I am also linking up with Trendy Treehouse's Shutter Love because this week's theme is Dreaming, and Simplicity's Photography Challenge, because the theme is Simple Beauty.

Congrats on making top 5! And I love this pic--it almost doesn't look real because of the toy in the foreground and blur of the lights--it looks painted or something. Very cool!

(totally thought bokeh was related to when Tara had her broken keyboard on couldn't use about half her keys *snort*)
