Crystalline by Sarah-BK Crystalline by Sarah-BK
Description
Here's something a little more winter-ish :D Finally it's getting quite cold (not that I like it over the heat but anyway...) so it finally feels like winter :)

I'd been dying to try out fancy-shaped bokeh for a while now - basically you cut out whatever shape you like no more than 2cm big and then put it in the form of a lens cover and simply slip it onto your lens (if you're not understanding, here's a pic for you that I got from Google: [link]) - any bokeh then takes the shape of the shape of the card in front of the lens (just like it would be normally circular from the circular shape of the aperture. For this, yes, I actually cut that 1.6cm wide snowflake out of a piece of card by hand (I don't have a snowflake-hole puncher ^^;) but I guess the results are fancy enough to make me feel like it was worth it!

That's my trusty glass bottle once again filled with blue liquid this time :heart: Coming out of it are lovely blue crystal teardrops which were one of the papercraft collectibles I got from a craft magazine I collected as a younger teen :) Oh, and on the bottom are snowflake sequins; another of the collectibles :heart:

Awh thank you so much :meow:

Maybe because few have the patience and determination I have when I want to try something :P Maybe it's also because that's the most I get to photographing snowflakes ^^; Glad you like it though! Worth the effort <3
