Not average at all, imo. In fact, pretty darn good.

The famous " Bubble-Man" Sterling Johnson, makes the bubbles I make the photographs.

None of my encounters with the bubble maker have been planned but I can see the bubbles rising above the horizon near my home and simply follow my nose to their point of origin.

Thank you.

Wow, I like this one even more! Hey, can you send me a message about when they plan to make the Big Bubble? Thanks.

Michael, There's nothing "average" about either photograph. The first one, especially, deserves at least an 11 x 14 print in a 16 x 20 frame and a place to hang on a wall. It's very good abstract art. Don't call the print "soap bubble." Call it something like "Expression 1" and let everybody try to guess what it is.

That image in particular seemed  so un-title-able to me, that I couldmt easily come up with a thread title to match the photograph, and so opted for the easy out.

Thank you

These images seem to speak to physics as well as photography, so for #1: Undulations in Time and Space.  For #2, Glass and Gravity.  Titles too pretentious?

Im leaning towards utilizing the comparison to Glass for one of the images as the shape of that "bubble" does indeed bear an uncanny resemblance to glass.

Undulation as a concept could work well also

Great image!

Here's the 'official' recipe - okay, one anyway...

Mike.

"12 - 16 cups warm water
1 cup Joy or Dawn dish soap
2 tablespoons baking powder (not baking soda)

You can substitute our Big Bubble Mix for the baking powder but it's optional. Changes  bubble behavior, not so much the size. Have fun! DS

wolfnowl,

I dont make em I photograph em.

making such things and making photographs of them simultaneously would be rather difficult I would think

No, you make them for the fun of it!  Or you let some kids make them and then you photograph them!!

Great vision and execution. One step further along the abstraction track would be to convert them to black and white.
