It's SUPER BOKEH THURSDAY!

Yes....I will admit it...I'm a bokeh whore!... I love it so much that I like to go out and purposely 'make' it. What is bokeh (Boe'kuh) you ask? Wiki says "a photographic term referring to the ├Žsthetic quality of the out-of-focus areas of an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field. Essentially, bokeh is an aesthetic and qualitative measure of light distortion in the out-of-focus areas of an image, and is primarily caused by lens aberrations and aperture shape." Bokeh is this beautiful creaminess you see out of low DOF photos. In any case- I took a little lunch time today to wander around the parking lot at work (literally) and captured some beautiriffic shots including exquisite bokeh.

ENJOY! Please visit my Flickr page to see these in their FULL size glory.
