    That is Gold!

    Another win for Topy!

    On a serious note, I would not worry too much about it. To reduce the squirm factor, I would slather some cleaner/reno all over the sole and use a disposable rag to wipe off all excess. There, good as Gold!

    If it is he looks like a slightly less intimidating Henry Rollins.

    I always expected FXH to look like some kind of internet enigma - like one of those #sprezzatura guys walking a cat on a leash.

    I don't really know what bokeh is, but I like to (as often as I can) try and find ways to frame the photo naturally (such as when I took a photo of a rose in front of a white wall), but hey, it's all good.

    I've had a hit of tailoring done by Shane. Fitted a few jackets perfectly for me- bit pricey but super happy with the work.

    Can't comment on the bespoke stuff though.

    Now - unfortunately I have to tell you that stuff you think is lint in your belly button is really mould.

    Hey Matt, bokeh is just the blurring of the background while keeping the subject in focus.

    This is an example (not mine):

    Thank you all for the kind words - the equipment is an enabler but as GF has mentioned, a lot of it has to do with the framing and composition of the shot. People do amazing work with even a phone camera!

    I'll keep trying to be better!

    As Gerry mentioned, bokeh is having a subject in focus in the foreground with a blurry background. Bokeh refers to the lack of focus. It's usually achieved by having a shallow depth of field, with tight focus in the foreground. Depending on the camera and on the focus, you can sometimes get quite pleasing dot patterns or small, hexagon-like shapes in the background as part of the bokeh and the patterns can be larger or smaller.

    Curiously, bokeh originally comes from the Japanese word "boke", which means "unclear" or "hazy". I didn't realise the connection at first, partly because of the Westernised spelling, but also because, in Japanese, boke is more frequently used as a slang term for mental incapacity, akin to absent-mindedness or foolishness.
