Bauble


Bauble, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

Our youngest turned nine today.

Among her presents was an odd contraption that looked like a plastic sword with scabbard. Fill the scabbard with bubble solution and the "sword" turns into a huge bubble wand at the squeeze of a trigger.

Massive bubbles filled our neighborhood this afternoon and early this evening.

THAT is the bubble shot I was after the other day! Excellent :) RJ's was very similar to that, but not a sword. Made huge bubbles, though.

Happy Birthday to your daughter!

I love this bubble shot. If you cropped it down to just a square around the bubble the upside-down-right-side-up silhouettes would be even more dramatic.

I find taking pictures of soap bubbles to be very difficult. Maybe I need a nine year old with a contraption to manufacture them.
