The Creativity Project~ Bokeh

Our theme this month was bokeh, and I have always wanted to try it with a Christmas tree. Since we didn't have a tree to call our own at the time, I headed out to Pier Village in Long Branch to use theirs.

If you click HERE you'll be taken to Marvett's blog, Savoring The Simple. After you see her lovely work you'll be prompted to click on another talented photographer's blog until you make your way through our whole circle. Don't forget you can join in and post your own bokeh shots on our FaceBook fan page by clicking HERE.

Until next month! Happy Holidays!

After numerous trips to the tree farm in the past month, we finally got our tree yesterday. I adore this shot of Linhsey with her arms around Gene. Can you tell she loves her big brother? They carefully examined each tree in search of the one we would bring home.I of course had to get some shots of them together because really, how often does that happen?I love it when she goes into deep thought. I wonder what she is thinking here?

The tree made it home and was adorned with lights and candy canes. Today we'll put on the ornaments and hope for the best with 2 dogs and  a cat. Charlie is going to have a great time!

*These were all taken midday on an overcast day. I switched between my 50mm f/1.4 and 100mm f/2. They are all processed in Lightroom 4 using One Willow's Palette Collection presets.
