Photo challenge: Blue – playing with bubbles

I was in the mood to play around with bubbles today (rediscovering my inner child as I’m supposed to). It started with me experimenting with a couple of blue things in the house – a plate and a rubberised coaster thingie – and seeing if anything interesting developed. (Click on the pictures themselves to get clearer images.)

Then I added water ….

Then I added a bit of washing up liquid.

The colours that danced across the bubbles reminded me of the oil and water pictures I took a few weeks ago. The difference this time was that I didn’t need to do  ANY post-photo messing around (except cropping the pictures) !

    Hi Alice, These are beautiful photos! My friend and I are participating in an all women’s off road race and wanted to ask you if we could use two of these photos as decoration on our car. It would not be for commercial gain. If you are at all interested, please send me an email and I will explain a bit better. Thank you for your consideration!
