Christmas tree bokeh.

Enjoying the lights twinkling throughout the house :)

For the picture above I set my lens on manual focus and blurred it to the desired effect, so pretty!

Then I made my own heart filter-
I took a piece of black constriction paper,
traced and cut out a circle from the end of my 60mm fixed lens,
(a 50mm or any fixed lens should work fine too),
punched out a heart shape out of the middle
and then taped the paper onto the end of my lens.

Put your lens on manual focus to play with the blur effect...

Something fun to try before the tree goes down!
