I am going to make an attempt to participate In Nancy Merrill’s photography challenge for 2017. You can read about the challenge here. Basically, she comes up with a theme and posts a photo that she think fits the theme on each Thursday. My task(as well as others following her meme) is to interpret her theme and post a photograph that I think fits the theme before the following Thursday, when a new theme is started.
Her theme to start off 2017 is “Fresh”. My photo is of some frozen bubbles that I created on an antique silver mirror…out in the -19 degree cold. I have played with frozen bubbles before(see post here), but I am using a “Fresh” recipe…with corn syrup instead of glycerin as the stabilizing agent:
I still couldn’t get ice crystals to form around the bubbles like other people have managed to do and the bubbles didn’t actually freeze….but I still think they are pretty cool. I am wondering if part of the problem has to do with humidity as well as temperature…more experimenting required! To see successful frozen bubbles and to get recipes just google “frozen bubbles”.
