We love bubbles!

One thing my kids love to play with is bubbles.  We had a bubble machine last year that was a lot of fun, but, like many toys, it didn't last.  So we bought a little bubble gun this year and have had a blast with it so far.  Hopefully it will last longer than last year's machine.  :)

I took a bunch of photos last week in anticipation of this week's Shoot & Edit theme.  Plus it was just fun to see what kind of bubble photos I could capture.  I deleted a lot and then narrowed the keepers down to six.  :)  

Here are my SOOC shots for this week's Shoot & Edit ...

Alex loves to chase and pop the bubbles.


I got some new macro filters, so I tried the 10x one out and was able to get really close to this bubble.

And just for fun, some out of focus bubbles to create bokeh.

I love me some bokeh.  :)

Linking my SOOC shots up with Jill today.

On Thursday I'll link up my edits with Ashley.  But to be honest, I love these photos and don't know that I'll do much, if anything, with them.  

Have a wonderful week!

Oh! I couldn't pick a favorite though the one with you son might have to be it! Great bubbles and sunflare!

Ashley Sisk said...

I love these shots - especially the first one. Any chance I can use it to render a bubble on my image? I can grab one from the web but yours is so perfect. Just send me a note if that'll be an option.

Gorgeous shots! Love them all. The 2nd one with the sun flare really caught my eye. :)

Michelle said...

Wow, Kimberly!! I love all of these -- the focus and colors are wonderful! I always love sunflare, and your flare shot rocks!!!

But the one I'm amazed with the most is the macro of the bubble in the grass -- wow wow!! (so what kind of bubble solution do you use??? because mine pop almost as soon as they hit the ground! -- and they don't have the pretty swirls, I don't think...)

Awesome job, Kimberly!!

I love how you can start to see the reflections and how the sun just makes the bubbles sparkle! The bokeh is so pretty!
