Share Six: December 2018: Bokeh

How did we get to December??  It feels like this year just started out.  I have had a tough few months work wise that have kept me really busy. Add to the mix was a wedding.  Yes my daughter got married last weekend and things have been kind of hectic trying to get everything in place.  And add to all of that my brother flew into town and since I don’t get to see him all that often, we spent time with him and then drove him up to Orlando. So this month I will confess that my theme is made up of one old and five new. 

We did a bit of a road trip en route to Orlando via Lake Placid, Lake Wales and Bok Gardens.  We also did a walk about The Swan and The Dolphin Hotels and the boardwalk closeby.  I have attempted to get some night lights as well.  It would really have helped if I had remembered to take my lensbaby with me.  

I hope we get to see your take on the theme bokeh.  In the meantime here are mine.

A little bit about Bok Gardens.  You can find these beautiful gardens in Lake Wales Florida. Edward Bok immigrated from the Netherlands to America.  As a young man Bok’s grandmother told him to “make you the world a bit better or more beautiful because you have lived in it,”  He did strive to do that and beyond his death the foundation has continued to follow his dreams.

It was definitely a pleasure to walk through them and just to enjoy the peace, along with visiting the very interesting Singing Tower.  On the hour music plays and yesterday at 3pm there was a concert.  I would certainly encourage you to stop by if you are interested in visiting these peaceful gardens.  Look out for more on our visit to Bok Gardens in an upcoming blog.  

Don’t forget that this is a circle blog so take some time to see what the other photographers have for you.  Following me is my friend Kathy of KG Ledbetter Photography.  Click on her name to head over to her page to see what she has for you.
