Bokeh! | Haze | Blur

What do you with a 50mm lens?

One suggestion is to try out what the photographic geeks call “bokeh”. It’s a Japanese word meaning “haze” or “blur” (thanks Wikipedia). A part of the picture is in focus (subject or foreground) and the rest of the picture is out of focus (usually background). Examples below:

Day out at Mossel Bay

Mossel Bay. Crystal clear blue skies. A enchanting light house. A mainly jovial atmosphere. There is much one can do at this little coastal town: boat rides to observe an island populated by seals, sunset cruises with BEER and cocktails in hand, to dining on freshly caught fish at sea’s edge. Go visit the lighthouse, snorkel with baby sharks or just grab a light bite overlooking the port, counting tankers or yachts.

We came across a tiny shark shop that contained various items to buy, from shark-tooth necklaces to soft toys of penguins. One can also snorkel with baby (small / tiny / not life threatening) sharks for a R100 – the Shark Shop also offer shots and videos of your experience.

We went to the docks in search of fresh fish to braai and later came across a ‘fish factory’ that provided ‘the best prices to the public’. It is there that I stumbled across a local Afrikaans rapper’s braai sauce in the shop (Jack Parow, HOSJA).
