Just a photo today — one of my favorites from Kitano Tenmangu Shrine of a Japanese plum tree blossom. I like the bokeh effect, which is defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light.” You can achieve this effect by shortening the depth of field with the aperture setting on a DSLR or SLR. Bokeh comes from the Japanese word boke which means “blur.”
More tomorrow from Japan.
