Heart Bubbles

ETA: I chose the other shot for photo of the day; but I'll keep this one up anyway! :D


I have two shots I really like for my photo of the day and I can't decide which one! This is a close-up shot of soap bubbles. Needed to do something other than flowers! This shot was done inside, in front of a window. I balanced a piece of clear glass on two drinking glasses; and tapped out a pile of bubbles onto the sheet of glass. On the floor underneath, I spread out a teal colored t-shirt. The sky and trees from outside the window are reflected in the bubbles.


As I was looking at this through the viewfinder, I kept seeing a weird, mysterious shadow in the reflection; and discovered it was my pony tail flopping over my head!


That gave me an idea! So I grabbed these two hearts (stuck to cellophane) and held them up until I saw the reflection! I took about ten shots like this one, and this one showcased the hearts the best.
