Shadow Shot Sunday #67



Hi Tracy! I'm back for another Shadow Shot Sunday.

I decided to try taking pictures of the shadows of bubbles. Well, I found out that in order to do this, I really should have someone else blowing the bubble while I take pictures. But I didn't do that. I tried to handle both jobs myself.

I didn't get what I really wanted. And I did darken the pictures because most of the bubble shadows seemed a bit washed out by the sun. Here's what I got.
The first is me, of course, trying to create both bubbles and pictures.

Well you did get the bubbles. You can do the same thing with soap bubbles on a bench or table top.

Thanks for your visit to my Pick a Peck of Pixels Blog and for your comment there about the long johns. Pick a Peck of Pixels

I love bubbles. Been known to grab them out of my pocketbook and send a swirl of them into the air! Mailed some to my nieces' worlplaces for their bottom drawer for stress management. Had enough for the kids in my classroom to take a bubble break.
So you got my attention!! Nice photos!

Hi! I especially like yhe bubble photo with the bubble against the black background!

Your site is one of my favorite daily visits- it gives me the same benefits as sitting down and sharing a cup of morning tea with a friend! Thanks!

Catching the bubble shot that works is a challenge, without having to make them yourself! A stimulating idea.

Sarah said...

I like these because they are so delicate. Well caught!

Kay said...

Now THAT is a wonderful idea!

Celeste Maia said...

Such delicate shadows with a touch of color to them. As if the shadows themselves breathed very softly.
Beautiful photos, Bobbie!

I enjoy blowing bubbles. Love it when the grandchildren are here, so I can do it. Wouldn't do it without them. Bad enough I drag things around the yard for shadows. Great shots and so pretty.

Deborah Godin said...

Hey Harriet said...

You did well! I don't think I'd manage to do both tasks at once. These are really fun! My fave is the 3rd one with the subtle bubble shadows and the bubble itself against the black. Really nice!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

I gotta tell ya, the virtual visual I got from your shadow shooting venture was hilarious...thanks for the smiles!

Crafty Green Poet said...

These are lovely, I can see the shadows too!

Chris said...

Great bubble shadow! In a physics course, I recall one of our end of semester problems was trying to determine the thickness of a soap bubble by the colors of it's sheen. I don't remember how the heck we were supposed to pull that off, so apparently it didn't translate to useful life skills, ha ha.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

What fun! I think I NEED to get some bubble soap so I can play too. ;-)
