A Photo A Day [Day 369]


It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves


Today was a dreary, rainy day. The sort of day that requires a warm cup of coffee, soft, cozy blankets, and a hint of sparkle to brighten things up. I tried playing around with bokeh to get a little of that sparkle and shine in my photo. Didn't get it exactly right but this one cheered me a bit.

I can't claim credit for the idea as I stole it from here via Pinterest. Her version is much better than mine. Which just goes to show that even if you're stealing an idea the execution can be just as much work as the idea itself.

I like it. It looks like you're holding a giant garland of purple pearls.

I LOVE Bokeh photography! Great photo! I've never done it but really want to get into it. Do you know where I can find a great tutorial or do you have any tips?
