Christmas is almost here. Ready or not, here it comes. We even got a light dusting of snow today to make it look like a white Christmas. Except it mostly melted all off when the sun came out. Fine by me. We had way more snow and ice last year than we even knew what to do with here in Oregon. So all of you praying for a white Christmas, remember last year and knock it off! Just a touch of snow is all we want. The rest of it can stay up in the mountains, where it belongs!
For me, it’s time to play with bokeh tree lights and photos of the cats looking Christmas-y.
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday. See you all in the new year!

I like big bokehs and I cannot lie!
I do love me a good bokehlicious bokeh! I’m surprised I waited until so close to Christmas to decide I really needed to get some wonderful bokeh pictures, capturing all the holiday lights before they are gone. So off I went on a walk around the neighborhood. I had to play with my camera a bit to figure out what size I wanted my bokehs. Too big and the outline of your subject becomes a blur, too small and it just looks like you couldn’t commit to taking a totally sharp photo or just going for the bokehlicious bokehs.
You can laugh at the word bokehlicious all you want. It’s actually a hashtag on Instagram. To see more of my photos, follow me on Instagram!
This has been a tough year for me, so I thought I’d at least try and end it on a fun and whimsical note. To me, bokeh’s are a lot of fun, so I hope you like them, too. And if you’ve had a bad year like me, chin up, buttercup! There’s a new year just around the corner. Let’s make it a good one! Time to blur out the bad things from this year and turn them into beautiful bokehs!

And of course, there’s always the wonderful bokehs of the Christmas tree lights indoors as well. I didn’t get motivated to take those until Christmas day. Last year I was trying to do them as soon as we had the tree up!
Oh Christmas tree!
