Accidental Bokeh

Christmas Bokeh
What  happens when you forget you left your camera on manual focus and try and get a couple photos of your Christmas tree?

Christmas Bokeh
Accidental bokeh.  Which, for some reason, I love (SOOC.)

I finally got my hands on the new Belle & Sebastian - love it.

We have not gotten our tree yet, your one looks lovely though and makes me think I should get one soon.

Holy loveliness! I've seen this effect all over the place, but I believe this is the only time I've seen it happen naturally! Those white christmas lights are just pure magic. :)

I love it too, and I just read a blog post about why one has octagonal bokeh and the other is round. But now I can't remember what it is for sure.

I absolutely love these, they are so pretty. I can watch this video so whatever the bug was has gone, like this song.

These are so pretty.

What does bokeh mean?

Amanda said...

The fact that you took these pictures on accident just adds to their perfection. They are dying to go into a frame on the mantle.

P.S. You discovered Belle and Sebastian's new album!! I'm so proud! Track 4 is always on repeat when I listen to their album... Love it!

So cute! I took a couple photos like this the other day - but they are still in my camera :(

LOVE your last few posts!! I could comment on them all :) I'm thinking a lot about resolutions and change for the new year too these days.
Hope you are having a good day!

This could be in a magazine... for real. Your photography is amazing. I'm finally (and slowly) getting a new camera. I can't wait to play and pick your brain too!

Hey, how come your accidental bokeh looks better than my intentional bokeh? :) Beautiful!
