Fun With Bubbles

Do you have any idea how difficult it is to take photos of yourself blowing bubbles? In my case, it was dang near impossible.

I had a good time trying, though.

So why bubbles? I'm involved in an art swap with Liz Crain. Her contribution was a ceramic jar that says "bubble soap" across the front. Well, before I alter the jar, I just had to try it out for its intended purpose. Naturally, I had a lot of fun with it.

Hurray for digital cameras -- I could point, shoot, delete to my heart's content. I would blow a bubble, snap the shutter, and the check the preview. 9 times out of 10 (ok, more than that), I either had the camera tipped at a dizzying angle, or I missed myself completely.

I managed to catch a few of them just as they popped -- I like those photos a lot. Can you see the bit of spray in the lower right -- that's a bubble caught as it's popping.

And, then, I tried to get a pic of the bubbles as they floated away. Do they move fast!

Good thing my neighbors weren't home; they would have thought I was nuts the way I was laughing over here.

s you can see, I played till it nearly got dark. Just like being a kid again.
