    Mmmmm….I love me some good bokeh, and this is some GOOD bokeh indeed :D Really groovy shot…..I have this huge urge to put on some platform shoes, and dance to this ! Great image in all seriousness Jus and it looks really cool in b&w :)

  • Thanks Shell*belle
    I’m really new at bokeh and I’m actually surprised it wasn’t a huge disaster :)
    I have to admit when I finished all I could think of was discoballs and roller skates for some reason :P
