Pic(k) of the Week: Bokeh rose

Bokeh rose

For one brief moment, the rosebush blooms splendidly in spring. Thereafter, only thorns.

Here, observing that with an inexpensive CCTV lens (created for small closed-circuit security cameras) but retrofitted with a C- mount adaptor to fit the (micro four thirds) camera.

Why do I mention that? Observe those bokeh balls to the upper left.
Bokeh (bō-kā):
the blurred quality or effect seen in the out-of-focus portion of a photograph taken with a narrow depth of field. Good bokeh is smooth and pleasing, whereas bad bokeh produces a jagged and discordant effect, largely dependent on the construction of the lens. From the Japanese, boke, for "blur, haziness."
