Just a couple of shots of a colorful bicycle I spotted while walking around the Southside today.

Speaking of “bokeh”, I do like to throw the word around on occasion, and so do many others. I don’t want to try to define the word because there have been many discussions about the topic all over the web, but I think the first shot of the handlebars shows the quality (good or bad, it’s all subjective) of the Pentax-A 50mm f1.4 lens that I used to take the shot, considering the background was a very busy looking mural on a building. Quality, in my opinion is the key word. The gradation from in to out-of-focus and how the out-of-focus highlights and lines, in this case, are handled.

The second shot of the seat shows the wall mural pattern but doesn’t really show the “bokeh” quality of the lens, at least in my opinion. Of course I could easily not know what I am talking about. 😉
