Day 20: Bokeh

This prompt was the one that made this whole challenge come to a screeching halt for me.  I was cruising along taking pictures most days even if I wasn't posting them but then I hit bokeh.  I had to google the word just to figure out what exactly I was supposed to do.  I'm pretty sure my point and shoot camera doesn't have the settings to accomplish this kind of photo purposefully and if it does I don't know how to make it do it.  I talked to Joe about it and he wasn't sure my camera could do it either.  So after hemming and hawing about it for close to a week I decided to cheat and steal a picture that Joe took while we were in Utah.  While I didn't actually snap the photo I did edit it, that counts right?
