the problem with being artsy fartsy...

... is that you can't be impatient.

last winter, a blogger friend of mine [Sue at Elephant's Child] shared a picture of a frozen bubble (like the one on the right), i wanted to see if i could duplicate it this winter.
but it isn't as easy as it looks.

while freezing temperatures are a must, and it is currently 27°F, your fingers may get all wet and soapy if your do-flicky for blowing the bubbles isn't attached to the cap of the bubble container. so freezing is a relative term that can also include your fingers.

it helps also if the wind isn't blowing, and it isn't snowing, because if the wind blows, the bubbles won't stay put. if it is snowing, the snow will pop the bubbles. so you wind up with frozen fingers and no decent pictures of frozen bubbles because by the time the camera gets them focused in, the falling snow pops them.

and it probably would be easier if i had an extra pair of hands to make the bubbles while i tried to take the pictures.

but no worries. i'm sure there will be lots of other days to try.

  1. No it isn't easy. At all.
    And I hear you on the need for additional hands.
    Good luck.
