The Story of…Bokeh Inspired Colorful Hearts

For those of you who don’t know, in the beginning of 2013 I was going through a creative rut for a variety of reasons. I decided to do something about it and came up with what I call The Sock Challenge.

For the month of February 2013, I photographed the socks I wore that day and planned to come up with a design based on them. The Bokeh Inspired Hearts is the fourth in the series. You can read about the first three designs, Bears Flying Planes, Polar Bear Eating Ice Cream and Stripes in Gray by clicking on the links.

Since I had just made an invitation for a dadchelor party (aka male baby shower), I thought maybe I would make another invitation, perhaps a wedding invitation or something. To me weddings equal love which apparently equals hearts and that’s how the heart aspect of the design was born.


I knew that I didn’t want to do a design that was just plopping colored hearts against a colored background. Since I’m a photographer amongst other things, bokeh is a term that comes up from time to time. Most of the time, I find that bokeh pictures are really pretty and I like the look. Thus, Bokeh Inspired Heart design was born!
