Whether you are interested in photography or not, we all recognize what makes a beautiful photo stand out - bokeh. The ability to create bokeh in an image is visually pleasing to the eye. For argument's sake, bokeh does not make a great image but, bokeh sure makes it seem better. Just ask Japanese photographer, Takashi Kitajima, for instance.
He has managed to use bokeh in a different way to allow the eye to dance across the image towards the main subject of the photograph. His photos feature city life in Tokyo and New York City. There's a sense of surrealism and magic seen in these photos that remind me of looking through a kaleidoscope. As a viewer, I find his technique unusual but incredibly interesting.
