nice day today. At work I worked on a new project and I enjoyed the experience, and the weather was not that bad (some rain that only cooled down the temperature).
Yesterday, while shopping at Dollarama (a discount shop where – by definition – everything should cost just 1$; even if, for some articles, the price is higher) I noticed some soap bubble containers, and I thought that I have actually never taken pictures of soap bubbles, and I thought (as usual): ‘Why not?’.

Today, after work, I started the hard operation of shoting. In fact, it was harder than expected. I did not have a plan, and a friend assisted me only after a while.
But the steps were something like this:
Camera in one hand, and bubble-maker-stick on the other.
– Prepare the camera (I chose Aperture priority mode);
– Dip the aforementioned stick into the soap container;
– Blow on the round-thing of the stick (today I have really no imagination at all);
– Quickly put down the stick;
– Even more quickly select the best soap bubble;
– Look into the viewer;
– Focus and…;
If you are lucky enough, you will get a good shot. If not, you might find yourself with:
– an overexposed bubble.
– out-of-focus bubble.
or even worse:
– no bubble at all.
It took me a while, but now I am satisfied :). Here is some shots:

[It looks like it has a snake skin. I like it]
Just a camera, some water and soap and an after-have-blown-in-it-bubble-creator-stick and your creativity are needed.So, No Excuses! 😛
When I am back to Italy, I am going to try another soap bubbles experiment. A bigger one.
I hope you enjoyed my shots as I enjoyed taking them. If so, leave a comment and say something about it. If not, leave it anyway. I like getting different opinions.
If you are going to try or you just want to show me what you shot, feel free to post your picture links on the comment box.
Have a good weekend!
On sunday I am going to Kayaking, walking in a park and checking out the International Blues in Mont-Tremblant.
enjoy and peace.
