My fingers and my face are numb, but I couldn't pass up the chance to play today.

Last Bubble Of The Season
We may still get snow. Maybe even some ice. Considering the weather this last year, either wouldn't surprise me at all. What we won't be seeing again, or at least I hope we won't as green things are starting to poke out of the ground, are the crazy low temps required for me to be… Continue reading Last Bubble Of The Season
At The Beginning
Of all the photos I got the other day, this is probably one of the best at the almost fully frozen stage. Almost all of the ones I took started to get too blurry by that point because of the transparency of the bubbles and the angle I was at. I don't think I will… Continue reading Feathered Ice
Frozen Soap Bubble
Yesterday's attempt at getting some frozen bubble shots was pretty successful and I learned a few new things. One of the bigger things is that I really need to be wearing my reading glasses when I'm taking photos anymore. I struggle more and more often to see if I'm actually in focus or I have… Continue reading Frozen Soap Bubble
Frozen Bubble Time!
The conditions today were just almost perfect for playing with bubbles. It was just a tiny bit on the breezy side and I had way too many pop before they could fully freeze, but I was still able to get some great shots. I also tried doing a video for the first time. Hopefully the… Continue reading Frozen Bubble Time!
Frozen Bubble In The Snow
This one was the only decent one I managed to grab yesterday. I think the fact that it was snowing is why I struggled to get a decent shot. The snowflakes kept popping the bubbles before they could really start to freeze. That and I wasn't positioned well to get a good, clear line to… Continue reading Frozen Bubble In The Snow
Wanting To Play
Yet again, I've been so wrapped up in other things, I've not been taking any photos lately. I would LOVE to be able to play with these again, but the temps and conditions haven't been right for it, so I'll just share another one from last year.
Broken Frozen Soap Bubble
This one is actually from a couple of years ago. I had really thought this was from last year, but I was shocked to realize it was back another year. I have this in the rotation of background images on my computer and I saw it pop up the other day. It is one of… Continue reading Broken Frozen Soap Bubble
I did it! I braved the horrid cold and managed to get several amazing shots yesterday. It took a little while as the area I set up in still wasn't entirely protected by the wind and they broke easily. I felt a bit like a circus monkey in the process. Blow a bubble, set down… Continue reading Frozen Bubbles!
The weather is absolutely perfect today for me to get out and play with these again! It is cold as hell, absolutely still and the sun is even peeking out every once in a while. This will be the first real chance to try this again since I've gotten my new camera, so I'm over… Continue reading Perfect Conditions
I've uploaded a whole slew of new photos to my Pixels site! Most are photos I've posted here before, but there are several shots that haven't been seen here.
Managed a grocery run in between storms. This is getting insane. My kids have been out of school because of weather nearly as often as they have been in school. AND we have yet another round coming later in the week. BG has had her Wednesday dance class canceled 3 consecutive weeks and will FINALLY… Continue reading Flaky
I first experimented with taking photos of frozen bubbles last year. At the time, I was somewhat pleased by the results, especially because I'd never done it before. But, I didn't have my macro lens yet so what I got wasn't actually all that good. When I went to play again the other day and… Continue reading Frozen Bubbles
