Bubbles

Family FotoFun Friday Challenge #24 
Post your pictures on your blog and leave a link and a comment here before 3/30/07. 

This week's photo challenge is "Bubbles".  Want to play?  Here are the very simple rules.

Bubbles1_smSydney and Suzanne's Daddy suggested this week's Foto Challenge and boy was it challenging!

Initially, we thought it would be easy -- fun even.  So we got our bucket-o-bubbles and the camera and headed out to our backyard. 

We set everything up but before I could even remove the lens cover from the camera, Maddy grabbed the bubble wand and pressed it to her lips and blew a big wet raspberry through it!  Even though I was doing my best to give her instructions, she did this at least a dozen more times with the same results (no bubbles, nasty soapy mouth).  Finally she gave up and passed the wand to Gwen who knew better than to put it on her mouth but still couldn't blow softly enough to produce bubbles.  So she decided it might be more fun to turn the bubble bucket upside down and dump the liquid out instead.

We have a little battery operated bubble machine so we switched to that and did manage to get some nice bubbles for the girls to run through.  They loved it! But taking pictures while operating the bubble machine is impossible since both tasks require four hands so our photos were really pathetic.   We had tons of bubbles but they all popped before I could put down the machine and pick up and point the camera.   To get the photos you see in the collage, I had to add some bubbles using a cool effect from my photo editing program.  Click the image to see a larger view.
