Out of Focus...

One of the things
I most enjoy about blogging
is the photography...

(click photos to enlarge)

I am always excited to get a good shot...


 

 To create a mood..



Be taken to a place
where the point of focus
between real and imagination blur...


I am crazy for a photo
with an ethereal mood...







I was thrilled to find and join
Tracy's Bokeh Party...

So today
I dug through my files
and shared some of my favorite shots
from the last year..

Come join the fun at...
and
 visit Kim's new party

Thanks for stopping by!

Your love for photography shows on your blog. Your pictures are absolutely gorgeous. I might "borrow" a couple of your pictures for my art class and paint them. Would you mind? :D

Bella your photography is captivating... I especially love the ones where the background is slightly out of focus, it does create an ethereal mood. I'm an amateur but I am hoping to get better at my photography and have been experimenting with different types/styles of photographing things since I started Blogging. Now if only I can figure out how to get the darn date off my cheap camera?!? *winks, I'm SO Tech challenged*

Beautiful images ~ they are so soft and romantic-looking.

Pat said...

These are beautiful Bella!

When I began blogging four years ago, I enjoyed photography, but not with the passion that grew after I started the Back Porch. An interest in taking pictures grew into a lovely hobby.

Beautiful pictures. I wish that all of you that take such great photos would post camera info too. {I'm in the market for a new one:-) }
Have a great day.
