COTW - Bokeh (ends 8/1)

This week's challenge is bokeh.

Bokeh is the blur or the aesthetic quality of the blur. Bokeh occurs for parts of the scene that lie outside the depth of field. We sometimes deliberately use a shallow focus technique to create images with prominent out-of-focus regions.

Go, have fun, blur your world and let's see what you got!

Please don't forget to remove siggies on this thread!

I'm not sure if the bokeh is doing enough in this photo to qualify. Still, I like the richness of the background. Also, it's one you all haven't seen before.

This is mine for now. Not sure if I will have the time to get something better or not. This was a family photo shoot I did for a friend and those are their kids in the background.

Not the best, but it will work. Just for fun. We were at Silver Dollar City and he was watching Ruthie.
