Little Pleasures

The Short journey of a bubble - one of my favourite feelings is just about to happen here:


With dry hair, small pockets of air get trapped as I lower gently into the water, air bubbles which form are desperate to reach the bath water's surface. Once submerged, I lay still in wait for them to gently contour their way to the left and right of my neck. The sensation of a bubble tracing around like this is heaven and best has to be when there are two, one on each side at the same time. Soon as your hair is fully wet its all over. Try it and enjoy.

    i'm going to have to let my hair grow out. i love the surface tension of the water on your shoulder.
  • Graniers 9y

    do you have time for such langorous baths every day? I shall have to forsake my shower and try it out. Mind, what happens with short hair? MMM. Anyways, love the dry skin being lapped by the rising water in the shot, smashing

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    Thanks for your comments, my favourite bit about this photo is the water's tension around my shoulder too for those that liked that.

    @naughtonlucy, yes you could get good results with this yourself, and Ive retitled this image after your apt comment. Thank you.
    @Nomad Chilled Champers? I'd rather drink it.
    @amiko yes give it a go, you wont be dissapointed and we can monitor your hair length via your 365's.
    @Graniers - No I only take one bath a year, whether I need it or not (finished work for Xmas so now more time in the mornings)

    Looks like a relaxing moment. I never have the time, it's always a fast shower. Nice Skin and water tones captured in this picture!
  • Patrick ♐ PRO 9y

    I would like to suggest that you drain the tub completely while you're still in it. Close your eyes and enjoy the sensation.

    Gosh gosh, this reminds me of an artist's work I saw on You will see, look here (see under prints - he has a few water ones)
    My faves are the last ones on page 2, with the window scene on background.
  • Cris Melo PRO 9y

    You look like a Brazilian actress (one of the best at her craft, BTW) called Marilia Pera. :)
  • sosij PRO 9y

    Thanks for additional comments here, and meloearth, yes I saw the paintings on Etsy they are beautiful, thank you...and in Marilia I did also see myself, thanks for your visit and comments, you are always welcome. Your paintings are beautiful, vibrant and exciting.

    i made a special point of having a bath with dry hair to test this out and it was wicked, i was concentrating so hard on feeling the air bubbles I forgot to lie there worrying about the state of my life! thaks sosij!
  • sosij PRO 9y

    That's made my day naughtonlucy!!! I'll await your next uploads to flickr of you enjoying the moment?

    Happy 2007 to you.

    This is an amazing shot the way the surface of the water is hugging the contours of the collar bone, it's a fascinating view of a very simple thing. I love it. By the way like the avatar!
  • sosij PRO 9y

    Thank you
    @rubiopic2006, well you have 12 months to grow your hair and enjoy this instead!
    @stanemason - thank you, I do love that bit too and was pleased that my lesser camera managed to highlight that detail (didnt want to outstretch my 350D in the same way) And thanks that wikipedia helped me understand the avatar remark!!

    Ah, I know what you mean! Sometimes if you lie in the bath long enough, bubbles seem to form all over you. I love the tingles as they run up and off my body - such a great feeling!
  • Ian 'Harry' Harris PRO 8y

    Yup, I don't have any hair but the bubbles are still tickling their way around for the first few minutes.

    Sunday evening baths.. wonderful. Especially if a hot chocolate magically appears halfway through :-)

    Bonjour, je suis un administrateur du groupe L'eau nu(e) / Naked water, et nous aimerions beaucoup que vous ajoutiez votre photo à notre groupe.
  • Oranimus 7y

    The water on your skin looks amazingly strange!
    It's mad and fantastic.
  • Iain Francis PRO 7y

    What a wonderful photo. The water around your shoulder looks almost like oil. I really like the way you've cropped it as well.
