Bokeh Sunday

The caption of my post my sound unfamiliar for bokeh cannot be a Sunday nor Sunday can be a bokeh for both are different things - but for me the last Sunday, that was yesterday, it made sense. For it was Sunday and I wanted to try the bokeh feature of my One Plus 5T cellphone my son gifted to me awhile ago. So it was a Bokeh Sunday or was it a Beautiful Sunday as was sung by Daniel Boon in 1972 when I was in my teens !!

And thanks to my wife who has maintained a beautiful garden loaded with flowers and trees. Though it is too early for our garden to bloom as spring is still a month away, some dying and blooming flowers and bushes gave me enough canvas to shoot my Bokeh Sunday !!

For those who are not familiar with the word Bokeh, the Wikipedia defines it as: In photography, bokeh (/ˈboʊkeɪ/ BOH-kay;[1] Japanese: [boke]) is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.

So scroll down and see whether I really made good my Sunday in trying the bokeh feature of my smartphone - I am sure I will get a thumb up from you. And for me it is some achievement as I am just a novice in photography.

Let us start!!



 
 The remains of past glory




Now coming to the roses. Though the season is already ending for the full blown roses, some still remained for me to try on my bokeh Sunday!!
 Yellows

Varying hues
 Monochrome
 White beauty
Cineraria
One thing before I end. While looking for some close ups, I came across this delight - honey bees busy making a Honey Mall. Well that was some excitement for I will have pure bee honey in a short while. And when I shared this photo on Facebook, many friends started collecting bottles to drain out the honey in the making. For the time being I asked them to bring droppers for there would hardly be any honey. But I think in the end it will be looted away and I will left with nothing.
Do tell me my Bokeh photo shots - why don't you share yours?
