Yesterday we put up the Christmas Tree, strung the lights and started hanging decorations. This morning I was inspecting our efforts and I noticed a decoration I don't recall having seen before. It was a simple white plastic angel. Nothing really special or outstanding in appearance. For some reason it really appealed to me. I could visualize the angels on the night of Christ's birth, "Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.'Luke 2:13-14. Naturally I went back upstairs and grabbed my camera to photograph it. I really like the out of focus lights behind it in the background. Have a beautiful evening, chris Camera Equipment Used-- Canon 7D, Canon 28-105 at 75 mm, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a 3055 Ballhead. Camera Setting- ISO 400, AV Mode, F4.0, 1/4 of a sec.


  1. Nice post Chris! Even I have posted about bokeh. Have a look at it here:

  2. Thank you for noticing the bokeh, Shravan K. I literally grabbed a fistful of green lights and hung them from a a black light stand for the background. That lens has a very round bokeh when it is wide open. You showed some very nice bokeh examples on your blogsite. I appreciate your comments.
