Blair, I find this last one great.
Because it helped me see something. A principle. You could really do magic with these bubbles:
To me the bubble looks like an alien spaceship, or a magical fairy bubble, or a brownie vessel, whatsever.
So - you have a sort of foreign observer or witness to things, once the bubble appears.
I believe, if you take common scenes, street shots and other with a bubble in them, you change the whole scene.
The last image could be just a simple shot of a dog and some stuff.
But the bubble changes it.
Why is the bubble there ?
What is it thinking about the dog?
What does the dog think about the bubble?
You opened a door !
Thank-you Christoph....My first evening shooting I was intrigued by the colours and the natural behaviour of them, as when I was a child.
Quickly it evolved into incorporating them with my surroundings then trying to create a story or feeling behind the shot. Basically
shooting blind and with an average of 15 seconds to compose,set exposure, focus and shoot (as I mentioned I was using my G10 with a wicked delay on the trigger) while the wind took the bubbles wherever was quite the endeavour and as I keep saying, fun ( as I'm sure Michael has found). Only the second shot was planned (somewhat). It's a great exercise with ever evolving changes in light and perceptions.The bubbles can be anything you want really. I guess it depends on the relationship you assign to it's environment.
I like the dog shot because it portrays a sense of menace whereas the first one Fairy shot one seems more magical while the second sky shot, more alien.
The subjective power of our minds: I see a fairy creature putting her hand/wing to her mouth in the green plant just left of the bubble in the first image. Quite a magical image.
Unfortunately, I also see an unpleasant connection between the dog and the bubble in the last image, making me wonder why you fed your dog soap. ; )
Thanks Colorwave...That's what I mean by it's serendipitous nature. I was running with my camera at arm's length 3 inches off the ground trying to squeeze a shot off before the bubble broke or I ran into another tree. I didn't see the fairy creature in the shot until I got home....
As far as Jackson (the dog) he's fine...Way too smart to be biting into them....But come to think of it, what a shot that could be...
Thanks for your encouragement and comments...I also urge anybody with some soap to go have some fun
