In photography, B is also for bohek - when the background is out of focus and makes a lovely diffused pattern. This is achieved by placing some distance between your subject and the background. It is also obtained by turning your f/stop (aperture) on a lower number like f/2.8, which oddly enough is referred to as wide open. This actually makes sense when you consider it is referring to how open the lens is... but we are starting to venture into numbers and B is a happy place (think butterflies, babies, ...)- and numbers are not in my happy place.

  2. Love the alphabet idea! Very clever! Great subjects for B!
