This is an ongoing series – mainly because I like to pretend there’s a great demand and interest for pond scum photos. It could happen. Someday.
I think these are my best gross pond photos. I was finally able to hold my camera directly above the water. Normally, I am at the edge of a pond, with muddy shoes, taking the shot at an angle. Not this time. This time I was lying flat on my stomach, partially hanging over a ledge. I could reach down in to the pond scum and burst one of the bubbles. It was great!
If you think I’ve lost it – continue reading. It gets better.
This was among the first photos in the collection. The photo is my interpretation of Claude Monet’s Water Lilies. I’ll let you take a moment to ponder it and study the similarities. 😉
Look at those bubbles!
I will confess I popped one of the smaller bubbles after the photo shoot. There was an interesting elasticity to the bubble. It did not pop as quickly as a soap bubble.
