Day 89 - Railing Against

This photo was actually taken just before midnight tonight, I was able to brighten it up and bring out the shadows with what I hope feels like day time. Most people seem to be fascinated with bokeh, myself included. It's very difficult to NOT focus on something you're looking at because as soon as your brain recognizes something is out of focus your eyes try to catch up. And even when you're able to keep your eyes out of focus, you are of course by the very definition, not able to focus on it. When a camera lens produces bokeh we are able to focus on everything that is not in focus, which was my purpose for taking this photo.
