Bokeh achieved by maggiemae

Bokeh achieved

Other great photographers on this site are showing their skills and some I can try to do and others I can’t with my limited bridge camera! However this is my challenge.
This was the bokeh look. ...and it looks super on the black too!

Three good things:
1. My dreams are so incredible, I can’t even describe them for fear of embarrassment! Good thing I forget them!
2. A cherry pie is on my list for tomorrow. Got all the ingredients!
3. The cat gets all her own way on John’s lap!

Beautiful!

Fabulous capture.

@graemestevens Getting my camera to focus on this tiny wee sprig was not easy Graeme- I had to focus on something near the same distance away then swing round and just blindly shoot!

@salza I might post a picture if it doesn't turn out as a mess, Sally! My offerings often do!
February 12th, 2016  
Great work on the bokeh - looks very cool. Fav
February 12th, 2016

Well done on achieving your goal - a great bokeh.

Very pretty !!
February 12th, 2016  
How delicate is the light around the edges of the leaves, and the bokeh is the icing on the cake.
February 12th, 2016  
FAV.
February 12th, 2016  
This photo is really lovely, simple and effective. Yes Awesome bokeh! Well done.

Save me a piece of that pie!

@grammyn Somebody posted a pic of a cherry pie recently, Katy and I never thought I would be making one - its for a friend's lunch party!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae It is one of my favorites! you have never made one before?
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae We always ate the cherries before they could climb into a pie, Katy! This time we bought heaps and I had to freeze them before they went bad! Lets hope I don't have a bad cherry pie - its in the oven now!
February 13th, 2016  
e I @grammyn I found 3 people who did a cherry pie - @john71, @laetitiapetrussa, and @cglist !
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae So you use sweet cherries? Have you ever had a sour cherry pie?
February 13th, 2016  
@grammyn I don't know about sour cherries - or green tomatoes for that matter! I did put a teaspoon of cider vinegar in - didn't have any lemon juice!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae LOL! Love it! In the US there are sour or tart cherries and they are called pie cherries. They make the most delicious pie but take sugar in the recipe for the sweetness. No lemon juice required!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae by the way if you grow tomatoes you have green tomatoes! That is what color they are before they ripen!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae Hi Maggie!!!! I got a new notification that you were following me (even though I've been out-of-pocket and it was so great to see your name!) I'm alive, doing well, I just quit my job (taking a break) so I hope to pick up my camera again. Been missing you and my other 365-ers! Love 365 Family and will have the time to check out what you guys have been doing all of this time! Big Hug Big Love from Lafayette, LA, my loyal friend!!! :-)
February 13th, 2016  
@thendrix58 what I did, Terry was 'unfollow' you then 'follow' you straight away. When you do this, that person goes to the top of the list. You obviously get notified too! Good! 365 is LOTS of fun - some people are so humorous, some so friendly and some so staid. I have fun with my input being quite silly at times! Big hugs back!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae I've been missing y'all and our entire 365 community, that's for sure! I can't wait to scope out the "newcomers", too! Hearing from you makes me feel like I'm hearing from a beloved family member. You have provided that spark for me to enter our 365 family again! And that's what I will always believe and explain to people when I talk about 365. LOVE that we are a close worldwide community. That's so Fantastic! I'm drinking wine right now so CHEERS!!!

@thendrix58 Skaal, Terry - from a semi-photographer with a glass of whisky in her hand instead of a camera ( on charge) - thats the camera, not me!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae I didn't know that Skaal meant so I googled it! This is what it said -- "We clinked bottles and I said "skaal," and I told her about Denmark, where I'd just been, where clinking glasses and saying "skaal" means you're allowed to switch from using the formal form of you over to the casual form." Is that accurate? I"m so curious and love learning new things.
February 13th, 2016  
@thendrix58 Well, afffter my Fifffth whishky, Terry, it can mean anything you want it to!
February 13th, 2016  
@maggiemae HAHAHAHAHA! You're my kinda woman, Maggie! If you are EVER in our area, you are welcome! You'd fit right in! Double CHEERS!
February 13th, 2016  
I'm glad I make you laugh because you always do with me- in a good way, of course! @thendrix58
February 13th, 2016  
The bokeh is a plus, but I also like how you caught the light on the edges of the leaves! FAV!
February 13th, 2016  
Classy look to this -- great greens and beautiful depth.
