Neither of these pictures are particularly good, but I think they're funny, 
so here goes...

The Mother of All Bokeh pictures:

This was one of those "let's see what happens" shots.  Leica M4-P, 
Jupiter-9 85/2, wide open, as close as it would get.  Sorry about the CCD 
"bloom."  Maybe it works as bad abstract art.

A long time ago in a galaxy far away:

Olympus OM-2, 35/2.8, wide open at 1/30, on a day when the weather went 
from sunny 72 F to cloudy, windy 40 F in one hour, and yours truly was 
stuck with only ISO 100 film on hand.  Too bad the woman moved.

Methinks the Leica picture should have been taken with the Olympus SLR, and 
vice versa.  Oh well.  Someday I'll get it right.
