My grand-daughter was blowing bubbles and I thought it was a chance to play. I never realised how difficult they would be to capture in frame and in focus. Anyway - this one pleased me as it was not only in focus but the reflections of the kitchen window made it look like a floating, transparent eye to me.

Well, there goes my idea of photographing a bubble! Nice one Brian, it does look like an eye. Great colours in the bubble as well.

Thanks for the comments everyone Smile

Sorry if I beat you to it John & Margaret. Why not try getting a double bubble or a different scene through the bubble? I had one or two crackers but which were either not framed properly or were out of focus. (Think of the bubble as a lens through which to look at the world)
