The aesthetic quality of the blur

Sometimes it can be hard to make a photograph interesting when the main focus is the bokeh or lights, like when I took a heap of photos of my different Christmas lights. There were small lights, fat lights, coloured lights which I thought would make for a pretty interesting photo. But it just ended up looking like blobs and I couldn’t see much interest in it at all.
The photo above was taking a different approach. I put the settings on soft focus and took a photo of the Christmas lights strung up above a blue/black night sky. It may not be the best photo but I think it is a lot more interesting than my ‘blob’ photos.

That’s why I am in such amazement of the fabulous bokeh photos on Etsy. They are captivating, interesting and I can honestly say I would hang them on my wall. Check them out.

Edible art

Eating too much at Christmas, a pretty universal trait I think. There are so many delicious sweets on Etsy, and some of the photos are so beautiful and artistic. So this Christmas why not stock up on some edible art, because we all know we’re going to eat way too much anyway.
