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.
