Finding the Unexpected (Post #8)



Another day with grey skies reaching.  I do hope the weather is beautiful where you are.  It actually isn’t that bad here.  We start out with grey skies and slowly the blue hovering just over the horizon overtakes them.  It’s not the bright, brilliant blue during springtime, but I am glad they are here nonetheless.  The day hovers at a comfortable temperature and we even chose to put a tent out on our deck and ate dinner outdoors.  Oh, I think the realities of spring break are settling in my heart.  I am so ready for this 🙂


To celebrate the day, I share with you more beautiful images taken with my digital microscope.  What would I share – but my favorite view, hovering atop bubbles.  I have learned, the angle with which you take a shot, the colors in the background, the lighting, the moment – all take an important role in the final result.  I hope you enjoy.

    1. I mentioned it in the post, but it could easily be hidden 🙂 Sorry! I used a digital microscope to look at bubbles. The variations in color are based on the angle as well as what is in the environment at the time of taking the shot, because of reflections. So glad you liked them 🙂

      1. Yes i read that , “hovering atop bubbles” but the reference to digital microscope threw me off – i thought you were a scientist peering down a microscope looking at some rare species or cell, and seeing bubbles in them!!! lol! the ‘digital’ should have clued me in. i love bubbles never get sick of them. i love now the really big bubble blower things that kids have so instead of tiny little bubbles, there’s giant rainbow bubbles floating around in the atmosphere. I always stop to go ‘aw’ .. lol. well, still love your photos, bubbles as i have never seen them. still love your quote on the first upclose and personal bubble pic! keep taking them! never sick of bubbles! 🙂

        1. Sorry, I mentioned it in a previous post and forgot to mention it again 🙂 I bought a cheap little digital microscope for my daughter’s school experiment. It does not take really good photos – in other words, it does not rake real photos like what you would see in a microscope. Instead, it just blow things up quite a bit and gives you a different view.

          Man, I wish I were a scientist. I would love that!

          If you shoot an image of the side of a bubble, you can see these colors and reflections. So very glad you liked them. I am also intrigued by bubbles 🙂

          1. well, i think the photos are fantastic! and so do many others here! colours and light! magic! hope your daughter is enjoying the digital microscope 🙂


          2. Thank you Debbie. I think I am enjoying it more – but she did finish her project and did well. Thinking I will take it outdoors this week to see what happens when you take it outdoors.


    1. Yes, it reminds me of when I was a child and watched a glass blower making little deer figurines out of glass. I was fascinated. The colors are just amazing. Seriously – snow now. We get that here sometimes although I am SERIOUSLY hoping that won’t be the case this year. Hope it warms up for you soon!

        1. Oh wow – I bet you grow beauties. Our backyard just isn’t equipped for that beauty. When I was younger I gardened a lot though and did really well. I guess the soil there was more forgiving 🙂 Can’t wait till you can get out there and do your stuff! It is truly a relaxing and peaceful hobby.
