P52 Week 4

This week's theme was "bokeh," which refers to the quality of the out of focus, blurry area of a photo.  For this photo, I had twinkle lights positioned in a heart shape about 8 feet behind my subject, the "LOVE" sign.  I opened my aperture all the way (1.8 for my 35mm f1.8 lens) and focused on the "LOVE" sign.  This caused the lights in the background to be out of focus and blur.  I wanted to have my daughter laying on her belly where the sign was, but she wasn't having any part of that.  Therefore, I improvised.
