Bokeh Town

"What is Bokeh?", you ask. Well, let me explain (actually I will let Wiki explain)
In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light."  Differences in lens aberrations and aperture shape cause some lens designs to blur the image in a way that is pleasing to the eye, while others produce blurring that is unpleasant or distracting— "good" or "bad" bokeh, respectively. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. Photographers sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.
Bokeh is often most visible around small background highlights, such as specular reflections and light sources, which is why it often associated with such areas. However, bokeh is not limited to highlights, as blur occurs in all out-of-focus regions of the image. - Via Wikipedia
I wanted to share a few pictures I took last week around town. I liked the bokeh lights.


I also went up on West Mt and took a few pics down on the town and at the beautiful moon over North Mt. Enjoy and happy Friday! Have an excellent weekend!
