Bubbles

Bubbles are so hard to capture

(when the wind is blowing hard)

It turned out to be a pretty nice day today and the morning was bright and sunny albeit a bit windy.

And as I was catching up on my blogging and reading, I saw these bubbles rushing past my window. Some kids must've been having a blast. I enjoyed watching them too.

But capturing them on camera was another thing altogether. They were rushing by so fast in no particular direction which meant that when I pointed my camera in one direction they decided to fly away to the other.

But I did manage to capture a few - more by luck than design. Hope you can see them - some pictures marked with arrows.







And as the Thursday Challenge prompt is Monochrome ((Black and White, Sepia, Old Looking,...), I thought I would experiment with the picture above and convert it to black and white. I thought the bubbles are easier to see in colour though. What do you think?

  9. The best way to capture bubbles is to get them at their source :) but its more fun capturing them when they are floating around !
