This week, we learned how to make our own bokehs and the pictures were fantastic. They were creative, inspiring and really different. If you had trouble creating a bokeh, keep trying. This is one of those crafty photo techniques that takes some persistence. Now, without further ado, here are the top 10 bokeh pictures from the week!

1 – Anne Jones

2 – Mary Richards

3 – Kelly Bigley

4 – Sarah Cannon

5 – Becky Kiesel

6 – Kristi Shannon

7 – Marsha Mood

8 – Susan Padilla

9 – Nancy Bagwell

10 – Vivian Clibon

I loved seeing everyone’s creative photographs this week. And I’m really noticing how much everyone is improving!  There were some great shots this week that didn’t include a bokeh and they were equally fabulous. Here are some of the great shots we saw this week.
