Yummy comes to mind for me, too, but I don’t think most people would find green slimy fungi-ridden pond bubbles all that yummy looking. 😀

Strangely beautiful picture though, same time it is a puzzling photo,
not only the subject but also the mind-set / intention.
Whether the picture became just nice photo was avoided by
placing or not removing the white staff right side, or was it a part of the intention ?

The white stuff was simply there, stuck to the side of the bubble. I was captivated by its contrast to the perfectly rounded, lively shape next to it: its decay and shredded form, so forlorn, seemed very beautiful to me.

Excellent shot Melanie,..

Beautiful composition. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was. For a moment I that it was a lime & a taco wrap bobbing in bubbling liquid. Perhaps you should have tagged this one under abstract food fusion. 🙂

Ha ha ha! You nailed it! That’s exactly what it is! 😀 (Just kidding.)

It’s beautiful! Such intensity of color!

Thank you, Carissa!

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (or camera holder)! I think this is most interesting – the fact it’s hard to decide WHAT it is makes it all the more interesting!

Thank you, Pam! Hope Sammy has great plans for a sleepy weekend. 😉

Beyond the doors of perception…
Strange subject, perfect result !

There are lots of amazing things to be seen in ponds and it’s a shame that more people don’t go and have a look.

Exactly! Ponds really have so much to offer. Great treasures!

Melanie! I’ve nominated you to participate in a photo contest. Details can be found here: http://denziljennings.wordpress.com/2012/08/27/capture-the-colour-contest/

Thank you very much, Denzil! I’m really grateful that you thought of me for this!

I know that ponds are in your list of favorite subjects; when I started following your work I found some really fascinating shots of ponds.
Very nice composition and colors Melanie; I’m not really sure what’s in the pond, but I like how it looks like.

(very pretty, regardless of what it is!)

No, not a lime…. pond scum bubble! 😀
September 1, 2012 at 1:47 am
HAHAHHAA! Now THAT just made me smile! Very telling of how great your work is! You made a pond scum bubble beautiful 🙂

Taco and lime. I know it is pond scum, but I really never saw pond scum look so bright and delicious. I like it too … the algae on our water trough for the longhorns is interesting to me. This is a really interesting abstract!
September 1, 2012 at 6:04 pm
🙂 Yes, algae offers such fascinating colors and shapes. Great stuff!

Often you like to desaturate or eliminate color completely to focus on some other element of your subject. But every once in a while, color becomes your focus. And at these times I think you are frequently at your best. Is this your homage to Esher’s Three Worlds? Add this one to my (long) list of all time favorites of your work!

Such a lovely comment, Rick, thank you. I always appreciate the close attention you bring to my photographs. I hadn’t intended it, but I love the association with Esher’s Three Worlds!

You have a fabulous concoction of colours in there. I reckon many an abstract artist would be very pleased to create something as potent as that!

Such a nice comment, Finn, thank you!
