Picture Hunting

Bokeh
I shoot with a 'point and shoot' camera, so getting a bokeh effect is pretty much always a goal when I take pictures.  I really like this picture because it's small flowers within a larger flower, and I thought the leaves in the background made a nice bokeh.

Business 
This is the General Store in Mt. Laurel, Alabama.  I love the way the antique store front looks against the blue sky.

Eco-Friendly
Really, I'm not loving this picture, but I'm kinda stuck at this theme.  This is a solar thing ... they have them next to light posts and streetlights to help run the lights at night.

Repetition 
Walking ... that pretty repetitive ... this shot was taken outside my work at Vanderbilt.

Music
This is the book I learned my scales from as a child.  I started playing piano when I was 8 and loved it!  When I moved out of my parents' home, I took all my original piano music with me with the hopes that one day I could use it to teach piano to my children.  Here's just a sampling from the first notebook I had.

Great shots! I love your repetition one.

You said that you work at Vanderbilt - is that the one in Nashville? I was there about two months ago for the Higher Things retreat :)

These are all great shots. I think you did really well with bokeh and your P&S. I also really like your music shot. Nice work.

Wow, you live in a progressive town/city having solar-powered light posts. You interpretation of Repetition is creative. Love the perspective.

Great shots! Good job getting bokeh out of a p&s camera. I love The repetition and business captures as well.
