Feeling festive..... by jackie8

Feeling festive.....

Had a little trip this morning to a local garden centre, Altons. They put on a wonderful display of christmas decorations and Heidi and I lurked around the displays with our cameras (feeling a bit like shoplifters and a bit furtive!)
@heidihp - 20 photos with heart bokeh, how's a girl to choose one!!

Love the heart bokeh. I just go in to my favorite place and ask if they care and they never do

Brilliant place to go for some sparkle and bokeh and you have taken advantage of it very well with this super shot! So pretty.

I find it so awkward taking photos in shops, people look at you as if to say, what ever is she doing? Anyway, it was worth your shady behavior this is lovely. Fav

@lucypics - so right Lucy (thanks for the fav!!) One woman did look at me in a 'what the hell is she doing' kind of way....... just brushed it off saying I was doing a photography project, which is trued!!

Beautiful colors and I love the heart bokeh.

Perhaps you should have said you were press!! I have just asked Heidi if her pic was taken at Altons, such a great place at Christmas. I love how they have so many different styles. This is very pretty how did you get the heart bokeh? Fav.

nice heart shaped bokeh

@paulaw - thanks for the fav Paula! I bought a bokeh kit last year from a photography mag, 20 different templates, they're great fun. If you google 'make your own bokeh template' you can do it yourself if you're handy!

Will have to look into that one in the new year, thanks Jackie.

Delightful festive bokeh .... love it!

Lovely bokeh. Is this with the heart-shaped hole cut out of a piece of card covering the lens?
December 11th, 2013  
@stevecameras - yes Steve, it is. I bought a kit with various shapes last year, it's great fun!
December 11th, 2013  
@jackie8 Might have to google the kit...been thinking of trying it with scissors and card but can't imagine it'll be as neat as pre-cut shapes :)
December 11th, 2013  
Great shot....super bokeh.
