Lately I’ve become quite obsessed with beautiful bokeh. Time to get out my LensBaby! But also before I got the LensBaby and used regular lenses only, I appreciated beautiful bokeh a lot. Did you know that there are discussions in the photographer world about which lens gives you nice or not so nice bokeh? And there really are big differences. Anyways these days I have noticed myself specifically looking for situations, frames that could give me a great bokeh and even when watching films I caught myself thinking ‘hmm, that is a beautiful bokeh’ – hahaha – I am pretty sure the director did not really think about it when shooting his film.

These two shots today were taken with the LensBaby (50 mm) and my Nikon 16-35 mm. Both pictures were processed in an artistic way to my liking, but both show some beautiful bokeh, don’t you think?!

And here is from Hilary’s blog:

Each week, I plan on listing four statements with a blank for you to fill in on your own blogs. If you want to join the fun and come up with four fill in’s of your own, please email them to me . If I use them, I will add you as co-host to the hop! This week’s co-host is Donella from My Constant Thought – she came up with the last two statements!

I would LOVE it if you could please help me spread the word about this hop…. So, please tweet, FaceBook share, and add the linky to your post…

PhotobucketThis week’s statements:
1. Lately I have been too busy to spend more time on my photography and it is driving me crazy
2. I sometimes have a tendency to over-think things.
3 .My favorite type of music is rock/grunge because hmm, well, just because. Oh, and depending on my mood, it could be something totally different like e.g. classical stuff.
4. I’m always amazed by how much work my little herb garden can make. Not really that much, but I still could do without, but not with out the herbs.
