Weekend Eye Candy

This edition of Weekend Eye Candy is all about Bokeh. According to Wikipedia "Bokeh (derived from Japanese, a noun boke 暈け, meaning "blurred or fuzzy") is a photographic term referring to the appearance of point of light sources in an out-of-focus area of an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.[1] Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject."

Isn't the effect so pretty? I've been playing around with it on my camera but never knew there was a term for it. Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to visit other Weekend Eye Candy lists from LoraHart and Hammer Stitch Burn. Hope the Easter bunny brings you lots of chocolate:)
