Drink by the Pool

By the pool at night

By the pool at night

I wanted to practice capturing bokeh lights at night. We were in Guam and the pool at the hotel had lights all around it at night, so we ordered a drink from the pool bar for practice. We grabbed a small table from the cabana and set up the drink beside the pool, then took turns photographing it.

The people at the bar were staring at us, but as the pool was empty and we weren’t disturbing anyone, I didn’t mind at all 🙂

The photo here’s the best I could do for a night shot with a handheld cam. I need to work on my exposure settings as well as camera shake. I’ll try to do better next time!

    Is that a PLASTIC cup?!
    Nice colors! What’s the green in the background?

      Hi slf! Yes, to our horror the pool bar served drinks in plastic cups! One of the reasons I can’t give the Guam Marriott Resort & Spa a two thumbs up. When we looked at the drinks menu we were going, “Hey, it’s quite affordable!” and then we soon figured out why. I’d have very much preferred real glasses!

      There were fence-like shrubs around the pool so I believe that’s what the green was.
