In search of good bokeh

I have learned a new photography term - BOKEH. In looking back at old photos I have taken I noticed that I had occasionally managed to get  "good bokeh" on accident, but today I went in search of good bokeh, on purpose.

Bokeh (derived from Japanese boke ぼけ, a noun form of bokeru ぼける,"become blurred or fuzzy") is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field.[1] Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject.
