Another shot with my Pentax Super Takumar 50mm f1.4 lens on my Canon XSi Digital SLR. Like a previous post, this photo also demonstrates limited depth-of-field focus, which is often expressed as bokeh.

Bokeh is a term that originated from the Japanese word for "blur" or "haze". The quality of bokeh produced by a particular lens is determined by many things, one of the key elements being the shape of the aperture opening. Serious photographers consider the bokeh characteristics as a key atribute of a quality of a lens.

So anyway, this is a small succulent house plant that sits on the window sill. Once the warm weather returns it will be able to comfortably return to the back porch along with me.
