Circle of Confusion [162/366]

Been working on a few projects around the house lately. One of them being to fill up a some empty walls with some pictures. On one wall I want a series of black and white abstract art. So, I've been tossing around a few ideas.

Tonight was one of those tosses. I set up my wreath of lights and blurred my lens. This produced a field of circles of confusion (aka bokeh balls, bokeh spots, disks of confusion, etc)

Essentially, light enters the lens and does not converge into a point which defines the in focus areas. The light goes straight in the lens and produces images like the one above.

Of course, the light did not turn black. That was my doing in photoshop. :)
