Week 50 – bokeh
I had great plans for bokeh … but it was one of those weeks where I didn’t come close to getting everything done that I had wanted to. Of course, every week is like that for me, but this past week seemed faster than usual.
I really wanted to get colored lights as my blurred background (bokeh is a Japenese word that refers to blur). I ended up playing with the lights on the little tree in Jack’s room, as I built a tiny tree out of his wooden blocks.
I had to “steal” blocks to build the tree, when Jack wasn’t looking. I sent him to go get his toothbrush ready so I could steal the blocks to build the tree above.
This is how his room was when I first entered it that night. He was making a “track” with his blocks, and didn’t want me to touch any of it.
And this is the tree I was allowed to make with the few blocks he had leftover (which is why I sent him out of the room to make the tree I really wanted to make, without him having a mini-meltdown for removing track blocks).
I do like the nice bokeh of the little lights on his little tree … and if I had had more time to play, I would have done shaped bokeh instead. I’m hoping to still play with that this week, but there’s still plenty to do to get ready for Christmas this year.
