Bubble Art

Photo Information
Shot with Pentax 100mm macro lens and K20D

These are images of soap bubbles fully formed and made to float on a viscuous fluid, hence the lower half being cropped.

Some of the images are of the same bubble but taken at different stages. The different spectrum of colours are formed based on different variables such as lighting intensity and angles, viscosity of liquids used, size of the bubbles, time from the moment the bubble is formed etc. The scope for different patterns and colours is countless and each one of them is unique and almost physically impossible to duplicate.

I hope you all enjoy viewing these colourful images which so often occur so naturally in our daily life but we fail to notice it.

Next time you are near a soap bubble or come across one make sure you try to look at it from different angles or perspectives and do play with light and shadow angles while viewing it and I am sure you are bound to be fascinated with these little beauties.

Thank you ffor viewing

Looks like something from the outer solar system Amin. Was it captured by the Hubble space probe - Hubble Bubble perhaps?

Couldn't agree more - I too thought of a star or planet on a first look - and then saw you had used a Macro lens!!.
On a dark desert highway, cool Pentax K5 in my hand.
