    I know this is cliché but it was fun :) bit of a mission to blow the bubbles, put the bubble thing down and take the pic before they popped! I recently heard that if it's cold enough outside, the bubbles can actually freeze and those make awesome pics...anyone done that?

    I like this. Cool shot! It looks like one of those gazing balls people have in their yard only suspended in air. I'm going to have to give this a try.

    As for the bubbles freezing if cold enough, I would imagine they would, but I think it has to be pretty cold for that to happen - like way below 0/f. I've seen TV weather forecasters in minus 40f temps toss hot water in the air and it freezes.

    haha i looked it up and it would have to be damn cold out there, but there is a way of doing it with dry ice that makes really cool frozen bubbles!

    Cool pic. And, yes, they do freeze. I've done it before. Excellent job!

    i tried to photograph bubbles before, but they burst on my lens, so i got afraid that it gets to the sensor and mess it up. it was really UNsuccessful shooting :p

    You had your shot just perfect!!
