365 - 176 - hubba bubba brownhorse

Newer Older

I'm not too happy with this one, it wasn't the grand vision that i had imagined, and i cheated.

Right i got some bubble gum the other week with a plan to do a bubble blowing shot....i had done my research, as i haven't blown a bubble for years. as advised, i had put 5 sticks in my mouth and chewed until the sugar had gone. and try as i might, i just couldn't get a bubble to blow bigger than 1cm.

then alison came up and after she finished taking the mickey, she tried and the same thing, it was just splitting.....so in a fit of rage i stormed down the shops to get some balloons....and then when i set up the shot i realised that i had not switched the flash off from the beach yesterday and i had no more batteries charged.....F*&$!

anyway this is the best that i could manage, its OK, i'll live with it.......

D200, Sigma 10-20, sb-600 on virtually no power, remote, some cheap arse balloons from the corner shop

    That bubble-blowing stuff's not for amateurs, I hear. :) I love this shot just the way it is.

    I love this shot, all the white wall space around you is just perfect, great simple composition, and if I didn't read your description I would have thought it was bubblegum.........I don't know how you do this 365 thing, you have so many great ideas!

    what a cheat! what a cheat! oh i'll show you how it's done my friend! i'll show you! it's because you're a grown man and you've clearly used your mouth to do OTHER things other than eat... ;) ! only kids can blow bubbles, cos we kids aren't used to blowing anything else BUT bubbles.

    *pops down to 24 hour local tesco to purchase two packs of hubba bubba*

    I want to see the moment after this, when the bubble bursts and there's pink goo all over your face :-)
