Bubbles for All Seasons (Online Event)

  • August 31 · 11:45 PM

Lance found this article and shared it in the Shutter-Buds Forum. It's about freezing soap bubbles outdoors when the temperatures take a dive. Apparently, the bubbles will freeze and you can get very cool frost formations on them. Can you get reflections in them?

Check out these photos:

Why not make it a challenge?

Let's experiment and see what the Shutter-Buds can come up with. Take some great photos, of course, to share with others in our album. (Will set it up soon.)

Here are some recipes for making a bubble solution:

You may also use commercial bubble solution, but may have trouble finding it this time of year. I found some in the birthday department of Wal-Mart.

CHALLENGE ENDS:  End of February

As Lance commented, "We should give this a try while the temperatures are Arctic."

      Yes, Gene. We decided to let it go into the summer. I changed the title of the album! Thanks!

    Ahoy!

      We all sign on at same time, and post about then, or post as we make the bubbles (like sunflowers) and "meetup" at no particular time?

      Any time you wish...we actually started posting in the winter when the event was, and people wanted to extend it to the summer months, too. You can peak at the album and photos. That reminds me; I have another bubble concept to try.

    I just extended the bubbles through August 31.

    I just added another month for the bubbles photos, since summer is a great time to get some bubble solution, some props, and get creative. Try making the really long ones with the "poles" wand, and don't forget to experiment with bubbles on web grass and pavement after a rain. Enjoy!

    Yeah! I can't wait to continue my "bubble battle". Thanks Sue for your flexibility and for coming up with a creative way to keep this concept going.

    How about this...we alter the concept and title of this event to "Bubbles of All Seasons" and keep it going through the fall. I just saw an AWESOME series of bubbles photos and will post the link in a permanent file soon. What do you all think?? Then we can get more mileage with the bubbles. Yes, wind is troublesome. Did you know that when you blow bubbles in the rain, they land on wet pavement and grass and stay for a relatively long time.

      Ohhh! An excuse to play in the rain! I can live with that! - Seattle girl ;-)

    Thx Laura, I'll try my porch, if the temps cooperate ;o) BTW - I can not reply to your post - no button. So must do it this way. Anyone else have this problem?

  • Kim M.

    I see wonderful photos posted for this event, however I had a heck of a time trying to get this shots. I couldn't get a decent photo to for anything! Anyone willing to share their hints, as the cold temps are waning (I hope).

      One of my biggest challenges was wind. My bubbles kept blowing away! What I was finally able to get I did on my enclosed patio - was certainly cold enough! No idea how to get around the popping issue though.

  • Kim M.

    WOO HOO Thx Sue!

    February 22

  • Laura

    Maybe if we ask nicely Sue will extend it for us...

    February 21

    • Sue F.

      DONE! Go play with bubbles for another week!

      Sue rocks! ;-)

  • Kim M.

    Me either Carol. Will we be too late if we wait for the next freeze?

    February 21

  • Carol K.

    Never got outside to try this--now its 50 degrees! But no worries--next Thursday and Friday its in the teens again :)

    I was all excited to try playing with bubbles this morning but the wind keeps taking them away from me.

  • Kim M.

    Great idea - I'm in! Can't wait to see the results.

    January 22

  • Sue F.

    I have set up the album with a temporary cover.

  • Kimberly P.

    Is there a photo album for the bubbles?

    January 21

  • Anh

    It's a great idea. I tried to do it recently. I didn't get the same result but it was so funny.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
