Photography serves at least two important functions: it not only preserves our memories, but it also provides a visual documentation of our history.
A few days ago, members of my photo group spent a couple of hours at the County Archives, poring over old photographs for our exciting new project, Main Streets of Montgomery County.
Image #75 depicts the NW corner of Main and Center Streets in Fonda, circa 1926.

In photography, bokeh is the blur, or the aesthetic quality of the blur, in out-of-focus areas of an image, or "the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bokeh)
This was my first attempt at bokeh, and I found it to be incredibly difficult and challenging. Nevertheless, I gave it a shot!
Thanks for the assignment, Linda. It was certainly a learning experience I won’t soon forget! “If at first you don’t succeed…try, try again!”
And I will.
