Frozen in a Bubble by Angela Kelly
- Caroline Kurze
Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly uses the freezing temperatures to blow bubbles with her son and take pictures of the spectacular results. The swirling orbs seemed to magically crystallize before the photographer’s eyes, leaving Kelly and her son speechless.
She describes: “We blew the bubbles across the top of our frozen patio table and also upon the hood of my car and then we watched in awe as each individual bubble froze with their own unique patterns. We noted how they would freeze completely before the sun rose but that once the sun was in view they would defrost along the tops or cease freezing altogether. We also noted how they would begin to deflate and implode in on themselves making them look like alien shapes or in some cases shatter completely leaving them to look like a cracked egg.”
