Bokeh

I have always loved 'out of focus' photography, I mean how can one not fall in love with the photographs of Uta Barth? I just never knew there was a special term for this type of photography called, 'Bokeh'. Learn how to make your own heart 'bokeh' here. This image makes me happy! (via Winters at the Beach) See more fun ones here, here, and here.

omg this is so cool.

i got some 3-d glasses a few years ago from a lighting shop and they would make any dot of light look like a heart. it was incredible to wear them around NYC and see all the cars having heart-headlights and all the street lamps looking light hearts.

i luv it -- it makes you feel like you're in a daze...like when you're in the car (but not driving), and it's dark and rainy and the streets lights blur and stretch as you fall asleep...ahhh, it's a beautiful thing

How could you not love it with all those little hearts.

That is so perfect - really, just like being smitten with a new person, or the moments when you realize anew how special a partner is... Thanks for sharing!

My parents-in-law had these plastic glasses (they looked like 3-d glasses)during Christmas, and when you put them on, they turned all the Christmas lights into different shapes: stars, little Santas, etc. It looked just like your heart picture!
