The Beauty of a Bubble

My daily routine is usually just that—routine. Get up, get the kids and the hubby up and out the door, go to work. Get home from work, throw a load of laundry in, dig up something for dinner, do some dishes while said dinner cooks. Well, tonight I just happened to take a little extra time with the dishes. Have you ever noticed how absolutely cool bubbles are? The iridescent shine and rainbows that play on them are just way too neat to pass by. In my sink, I found some art tonight. But wait! That's not all. Since I was on the theme of bubbles, I looked over at the churning pot of water boiling, getting ready for the spaghetti noodles to slide in. "Hmmm. I wonder how those bubbles would look in a photo. I sure hope I don't ruin my camera in the process . . ." Trent peeked at the image when I was just opening it and he thought they looked like clouds. The texture is liquid, but soft. A totally different kind of bubble art, but still art to me. Let me know what you think!

Dish Soap Bubbles: f1.8, 1/250, ISO 400. Screw on close up lens +4. Curves.
Boiling Pot Bubbles: f3.5, 1/15, ISO 400. Just some general color adjustments. That's it.

Great new blog - yay for you - and yay for us who get to see your inspiration. You are an inspiration for those of us who are creative as, well, I don't even have an clever analogy because I'm lacking so much creativity. Thanks for sharing!
