Christmas Lights Bokeh



328 / 365 - Christmas Lights Bokeh

I was hopping through some photo blogs when an interesting picture caught my eye. The blog owner said it was her version of Christmas Lights Bokeh, and seeing it made we wish I could do it, too. Well last week, I was trying to take pictures for my Project 365, and the Christmas lights over our neighbor's house caught my attention. They created a star shape of lights on their window, and I was hoping to take a picture of it. I was able to take pictures of the lights, but this somehow became my photo for the day. Actually, this picture was a product of an accident, the window was quite far and I had to max up on the zoom - to the point that I was already using the digital zoom. But somehow, it did remind me of the great bokeh a photoblogger created. This one wasn't good, but I got a bokeh! Hehehe.

ps - for DSLR users, I read that if you want to create your own bokeh, put the camera on manual focus and take the shot. I am using a point and shoot, so I can't do it, even if I want to. :)
