Happy Bokeh Wednesday (or a reasonable facsimile)

There is a Flickr group called Bokeh Wednesday. I am not a member of this group, and from the looks of it, I COULDN’T be (as they are currently not accepting new members.) However, it IS Wednesday. And I DO have some shots that show off bokeh* because I just got a lens with a large maximum aperture (a 50mm/2, for those of you who care about such details) for my digital camera (I have a Pentax K20d). And you know what that means? I am turning this into a bokeh Wendesday blog post. Hurray! It’s my way of sticking it to the man for not letting me join the official flickr group (just joking. I understand the overabundance of people who are excitedly posting photos with lovely bokeh on Wednesdays. I will happily join your merry band if membership is ever opened up again!)

Your typical “out of focus lights in the background” bokeh shot

Just a picture of Adam Hite’s arm and kung poa shrimp? Yes. But I liked the bokeh.

Happy Bokeh Wednesday, people!

*Bokeh is the out-of-focus area(s) of photos. Different lenses render the out-of-focus areas in different ways, so some have bokeh that is pleasing to the eye and some don’t. Whether or not one finds a lens’ bokeh pleasing is entirely subjective, as are most matters pertaining to photography.
