Angela Kelly Photographing Frozen Bubbles
Winter is a time to sit back and relax. People enjoy the holidays, spend quality time with friends and family and do other stuffs which you might have kept on hold due to time constraint. But if you are one of those creative people who love photography and have some soap in your house, you may try something different; something similar to Angela Kelly, a photographer based out of Arlington, Washington. Once the city started to freeze in single degree temperature, this creative dynamite decided to try playing with soap bubbles. With a homemade recipe which includes dish soap, water and karo syrup; Kelly prepared her solution and went out to see what happens to the bubbles in this temperature.
Kelly’s experiment displayed some amazing results. Soap bubbles displayed tremendously interesting behavior. Some of them which were smaller in size froze mid air and dropped dead, some touched the ground or other surfaces and then started to freeze and a few others busted mid air. With the change in the temperature of surrounding these soap bubbles transformed themselves. Once they were touched by the magical light of Sun, some defrosted partially whereas as others deflated completely.
But, the purpose of blowing soap bubbles was not to have fun. Kelly wanted to capture them through her camera . Kelly captured some of the most heavenly looking photographs of these soap bubbles depicting different shapes and sizes. Also, like a scientist Kelly and her son noticed that the best place for these bubbles to land upon to get some enhanced beauty were the windshield of Kelly’s car or the top of their patio table.
Kelly captured many beautiful shots and a few of them are here for you. To view some selected works of Kelly, please visit her Website. You can also keep an eye on regular updates on Kelly’s projects through her Facebook page and Flickr profile.
And next time onwards, if you encounter the wrath of freezing temperatures, do not sit quietly. Go out and blow some bubbles. It might be a lot of fun.
