Bokeh Party Time is Here

Bokeh Linky Party

I hope you have been practicing getting blurry backgrounds and have lots of great pics to post to the linky party.  I am looking for ideas for the next photo party so if you have one leave a comment. 

I bought some tulips and practiced my shots in front of my bay window so I would get a lot of light.

There is a cabinet, chair, curtains and a window in the background of this shot.  I added a slight haze to this photo for a more dramatic blurred effect.

In this shot the closest tulip is focused and the background tulips  are blurry.  I also added a texture to this one for more interest.

This one the entire background became blurry and dark. The background area was on open doorway into another room.

This is the same shot using different editing techniques in Photoshop Elements.

I used a texture from Kim Klassen Café blog to get this look.  Here is the texture.

Looks really neat huh? 

Ok it’s time for you to show off your shots.  I have really been looking forward to this party.

P.S.  Please say a little prayer for my 4 legged family member Harley.  She is going through her 2nd bout with pancreatitis.  The first one was last weekend.  I think a vet finally figured out the cause, but it can be deadly to dogs and we lover her so.  Here’s a little photo of her that makes me laugh.  I just took this on Friday.
