Background bokeh effect

Not in the limelight

Never underestimate

Your background power

While looking through my photos, I came across a few with lovely bokeh effects. This one in particular stood out.

And it made me think!

The object I was focusing on only shone because of the amazing blur, or bokeh, behind it.

Just like life!

If it weren’t for those of us in the background, no-one would be seen to shine!

So here’s in celebration of all of you out there, who, like me, are a Mr Spock and not a Captain Kirk!

post script: So what is the photo? Surprisingly, this was in the background when I was taking a close up of a freesia. It is dappled sunlight filtering through the leaves of a honeysuckle behind the freesia. No I’m not going to show you the whole photo, because today is the turn for those in the shade to shine!
