Frozen in a Bubble

Angela Kelly, a photographer based in Arlington, Washington, USA, has provided the world with a creative response to the chilling temperatures being experienced in North America with “Frozen in a Bubble”. From December 4 to 6, 2013, the temperature was expected to drop to between 9 and 12 degrees Fahrenheit (-11°C to -13°C). Kelly and her 7 year old son got ready to create and photograph frozen bubbles using a combination of liquid detergent, corn syrup and water. Using a Nikon D3100 DSLR camera, a kit 18-55mm lens, and a macro tube set Angela captured the results as bubbles formed, deflated and collapsed on the hood and windshield of her car, and on the patio table. The inspiring results, ranging from whole frozen and semi-gleaming bubbles through to their deflated and shattered counterparts, are inspiring backyard photographers across the world.
