As usual I took a lot of close up photos (I should really invest in a macro lens!) but lately I've been seeing light in a different way and finding myself attracted to bokeh photography (basically a blur effect creating an out-of-focus area) and trying to create it.  There's apparently difference kinds of bokeh: one in which the blur is created on an object in the photo, the filters that you can get through various apps for smartphone photography (the heart-shaped bokeh is very popular!), and the kind that I'm more interested in, which is the blur arounds lights in your image background.  So be prepared to see more of this effect in future photos!

  2. I want a macro lens too! I love taking closeup photos but I always ended up cropping them to get them closer. Must look into that this year.
