Soap bubbles 1

Sometimes very ordinary things around the house catch your eye and present themselves as an opportunity for a photograph. So it was this morning when I saw these soap bubbles in the washing up bowl. I was intrigued by the way they seemed to be fighting for space on the surface pushing each other out of the way.

 

The ambient light was not so good so I attached my flashgun and Stofen and opened the aperture to f2.8 to reduce depth of field to a minimum. I may try this again but this time reflecting the light from a coloured background to see what effects that might achieve.
