Amy recently posted an awesome light bokeh photo on Facebook. So I was thinking it would be a really neat idea to have "lights" as the theme for December. that way it's not really a holiday focus, but the holidays do allow for different captures of light. "Lights" can be captured in a variety of ways, and so I think it would be a fun board challenge to do.
Amy, can you share your photo here so my post makes more sense? Thanks!
I'm really really really behind on posting, here and other places on pg.org. Business and travel have been taking my time. I really hope to catch up soon, I really miss posting!

I think this is a super fun idea!!! Amy, please do post that picture, it's a GREAT example!
Awwww thanks Gwen & GiGi! I'm glad you like it! I was laughing as I took it because at first I was trying to get the bokeh by putting my hand in the foreground to get the focus right, but the camera didn't like that--it wouldn't take the shot. So I focused on my hand, kept holding the button halfway, while switching the lens to manual focus, then completing the shot. lol!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the idea of "Lights" as a December theme!!!! I have always adored glowing lights, low lights, sparkly lights, anything like that. That's why last year I did some of Eva's Christmas photos next to the glowing tree in low light--I just love that. I hope to do that again this year, but with better settings now that I know what I'm doing lol

I love that bokeh shot! I am going to be taking out all my christmas things tomorrow...which isn't much unfortunately. This whole moving process has been going on for a couple years now and it's prevented me from buying really cute Christmas stuff Can't wait to get started! Hopefully I'll be able to go downtown for some Christmas lights there.
This is a wonderful idea. Loida - if I remember, I thought you did something like this in one of the COTW challenge? I'll have to find your post if its still up.
