I have a problem with Bokeh. I'm addicted to it. Seriously... I need an intervention. I've had the Tamron for about three months and I don't think I've moved much from 2.8 or 3.2. I need to let it go and dial up sometimes. I have plenty of shots that are ruined because its too tight.

But, then again, I have plenty of shots that are just perfect. This weeks POTW challenge involved my favorite thing.

Several weeks ago, I took some photos of the water lilies in the coy pond. I noticed the other day that there were some more blooming, so I raced out there with my camera. They are still buds, but just as beautiful.

Here is my POTW submission:

POTW bokeh 1

Here are some more from that session:

POTW bokeh 2

POTW bokeh 3

bokeh 4

bokeh 5


  1. I really like it...looks beautiful!


  2. Oh gosh, you're not alone. I'm OBSESSED with bokeh. I can't get enough of the stuff.

  3. These are great - I'm addicted to bokeh too. Try dialing up sometime's fun sometimes. :)

  4. I simply adore your submission. simple, elegant, perfection.
    And what is that last one? just a lily pad? so neat!
