Texas lavendar~Sunday Stills Challenge~112711

This week's challenge was bokeh, which I never heard of before, and I had to read up on it.  Bokeh means basically "out of focus" and means that while your subject is in focus, the background isn't.  Honestly, I'd never really thought about this before and I had to go through my archives to find an example of it.  I took this photo while we were over in Arizona, in Scottsdale, in August this summer.   Since I usually take landscapes, I had to really search for an example.  I hope this is a decent one...Sunday Stills Challenge for 112711.  To visit Sunday Stills Challenge, please go to:  http://sundaystills.wordpress.com/

Perfect example! I didn't really think about it until you said something, but landscapes and bokeh are really on different ends of the spectrum; completely in focus as opposed to partially in focus. Beautiful flower, I haven't seen anything like it before.
