Week 45 Photo Challenge: Bokeh

It seems I'm back to the normal blogging schedule after two months of hit and miss due to the never ending project, which did finally end. Well at least the project part, now we've moved on to the debrief and how to make it go smoother next year part.  Last week's photo challenge post was a catch up, this week we're up to date and mostly on time.  This week's challenge:

Both the Scientist in Training and I had to Google what we were actually challenged with.  Per Wikipedia, bokeh in photography is aesthetic quality of blur produced in out of focus parts of an image.  So probably not a word worth adding to your vocabulary unless you are a photographer.  

It's late spring/early summer in Oklahoma so we have wildflowers blooming. 

Kate: Blanket Flower Bokeh

I've been so busy with work that I didn't get in a lot of wildflower photography this year. I may have to buy some flowers to get in my usual flower photos this year.  

My Guy stuck with the same theme this week.  

My Guy: Bouquet Bokeh

The white flowers are foxglove beardtongue, the orange flowers in the background are butterfly weed.  

The SIT didn't participate this week, she had a girls weekend over the Memorial Day holiday with friends from college only to find out one of the girls tested positive for COVID when she got home.  Both the SIT and her roommate have been sick since Tuesday and tested positive on Thursday.  Thankfully neither has been that sick, just really uncomfortable.  

The challenge for week 46 should be a relatively easy one. 

Hmm, lots of options for this one.  I hope you'll stop by next week to see what we come up with.

Well hopefully the girls get lots of rest and kick any Covid symptoms to the curb quickly.

Your flower photos are really beautiful. They're so pretty they could be used on a greeting card!

hope she won't be sick long - one of my nephews and family in Virginia got it for the 2nd time a couple weeks ago - one needed medication the others didn't. none of them had gotten booster shots for some dumb reason!

It looks like bokeh photography is perfect for beautiful flower photos! I hope the SIT and her roommate feel better each day. That is no fun!

Your bokeh photos are lovely. Sorry about the SIT. That’s a bummer. My son got it a few months back too. He said it was like a bad cold.

Hi Kate, those are gorgeous. I googled the term last time I was here! Very well done.

Sure glad you looked up that word for us. I was wondering what it was. I need to pick up my photography challenge again. It was bonding with my family living a distance away from each other.

Both great pictures and hope the SIT has fully recovered by now!
