O is for.. bOkeh visiOns

To see this photo in a larger size, click here.

This dreamcatcher hangs in Robinson Woods, a local forest preserve that contains the family burial grounds of a Pottawatomie chieftain named Alexander Robinson (he was part white, which explains his European name). I wrote more about my visit to Robinson Woods earlier this week on my journal blog.

Obviously, I picked this photo because of the "O" shape of the dreamcatcher, but what I really like about this photo is the pretty bokeh effect going on in the background. That's a new term to me, by the way, and it more or less means that the blurry areas are pleasing. I think. :)

I'm participating in ABC Wednesday today with the letter O.

  1. I love dreamcatchers, more if they're PINK!

  2. I agree - nice bokeh - and the dream catcher is very appealing!

  3. @Digital Polariods -- I agree. The pink is working for me here.

    @kml -- Thanks! It has the nice "O" shape going, but I had to stretch on the "O" title for it.
