Circle of confusion

I never seem to get tired of making pictures like this. Put the lens way out of focus, point the camera at the Christmas lights, and the optical factor know as "circle of confusion" gives you these colorful results.

I remember taking photos like this with my first SLR way back in 1966.

Still looks good to me.


  1. It sure does look good. We have made many like that and used them for cards.

  2. Looks good to me too, John. It takes a conscious effort if you're used to autofocus, but certainly the results are worth the effort.
