Show us your what? Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens. The term comes from the Japanese word boke which means to “blur” or “haze”.
As I am still determining which camera, appropriate lenses and other additional necessary photography equipment will suite me best, I have been capturing photographs on a Canon Rebel. This is a photograph of a blue Plumbago plant with decent bokeh. Plumbago is a genus of 10–20 species of flowering plants in the family Plumbaginaceae.
I do some driving and every now and then you need some extra help on car repairs and maintenance. Some huge semi truck had a rather large rock roll off its uncovered cargo and it found my windshield to land on and bounce from leaving a rather large crack in my windshield. Safelite AutoGlass repair came to the rescue. As it was being repaired this Monday morning, I was in and out of the office to check on things and had the idea for this particular theme; of out of bounds.
My friend is a book collector. In her findings she has this very special autograph from part of a letter written by Alfred Einstein. She is selling it for $1,000 tomorrow with a local bookstore owner. Pretty abstract any way you look at it.
Stripes for the fourth and freedom and the full moon for a buck’s growing antlers! What you say? July is the month for freedom and fireworks but it is also for the full buck moon. At this time, a buck’s antlers are in full growth mode just making all hunters squirm with excitement as they think about hunting come fall.
How did the Full Moons get their names? The Full Moons have descriptive names that come from Native American tribes who used the Full Moons as a sort of calendar to keep track of the seasons. The Almanac tends to use the names of the Alnquins who were prominent along the Atlantic Coast and into the interior along the St. Lawrence River and around the Great Lakes.
All animals fascinate me. Some scare me. Some are absolutely beautiful. Some are really strong some are quite weak. They all serve a purpose. This one is particularly pretty don’t you think?
One Saturday morning this past spring I was kayaking down in Venice. I came upon this old boat house. Most would probably not consider this an appropriate photograph for this theme but this is my kind of architecture and anything goes, doesn’t it? Look at that scalloped trim on the left side! 🙂
As a big bonus, to the right of this very cool old boat house were two young boys paddle-board fishing while listening to some country music. Loved seeing that two young kids were up and out enjoying a great Saturday morning doing what they love. It put a smile in my heart and on my face. If I had a son, he would most likely be doing the same exact thing.
This photograph makes me just want to get my arse in a boat and go fishing with my father and his two fishing buddies.
No words for such beauty.
