The topic of this post was supposed to be “What place do you want to visit based solely on beautiful photographs that you’ve seen?” I decided to turn it around and show you my photos of where I have been and see if they will entice you to go there as well. As a bonus, one of my photos includes a sun flare for the photo topic. Double score! These are from my last trip to France; my third, my husband’s first.
I am a Francophile. France is one of my favorite places to visit, and I have studied French language off and on for years. I made it a point on this trip to try to speak in as full sentences as possible, rather than relying on “baby speak,” using few words and lots of hand gestures. It was a bit more of a challenge, but a much larger sense of accomplishment to speak more like a local!
I had mostly travelled alone before, when I was a single gal. There are definite advantages to traveling alone, but this trip with two made it more economical to rent a car, something I had never done before, and drive out to the countryside, along the Route du Vin.

Wikipedia says Bokeh has been defined as “the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light” Bokeh is the aesthetic quality of the blur produced in the out-of-focus parts of an image produced by a lens.
A nice, short tutorial (in Plain English!) on how to achieve bokeh here.
