  1. It’s really difficult to get a handle on this shot – it’s so abstract, but so obviously not abstract (and beautifully framed) – what a pleasurable conundrum!

    • Thank you, Richard! This is one of those images where I can’t quite figure out what’s happening (in terms of the bubbles themselves–what stage of their development they are in, that is). Are the bubbles just blossoming or are they on the verge of bursting?

  2. This seems to me a nightmarish encounter to an asteroid band
    for a space traveler.
    Hence it having quite far depth —– center left
    ring is the closest and the small asteroids afar 🙂
    Some looked having a face 😀
    It must be somewhere another galaxy, million light-years away.
    —– very very fascinating photo.

  3. My kind of “strange looks”…..I don’t mind getting this sort…..beautifully complex.

    • Thank you, Pam! I couldn’t help but see some eyeballs in the mix here (my imagination takes me “out there” sometimes 🙂 ). I’m so glad you like this one! Hugs to you and Sammy.

    Those bubbles remind me of jellyfish. 😀

  9. I can’t figure out if they froze while forming or popping, but it must have happened fast.

    • You wondered exactly what I did! There are some fascinating shapes in the mix there. And yes, it must have happened fast.

  10. This one and the previous post are my favorite ones. Maybe also because I love black and white 😉

  12. Like some kind of fungi releasing its spores…or….a mother-ship releasing transport pods…crazy wonderful….

    Mushroom cap eyes. H. P. Lovecraft country. 😀

  14. Now that Joseph suggested it, I can only think “mushroom caps”! I think a couple of the bubbles burst. It’s fantastic that you captured that. The large one in the forefront obviously is not intact. Fascinating composition! 🙂

    • Yes, we’re in Lovecraft land for sure here. There is another bubble like the one in the forefront but in the very deep back right that is so interesting to me, similar to the one you mention in the front, but the bubble shell looks black (it’s almost imperceptible, but it’s there–it’s my favorite part of the photograph 🙂 )

  15. This made me laugh…all those eyes!

    January 30, 2013 at 11:36 am

    • 😀 I’m so glad you laughed! That makes me very happy.

  16. Yes, galaxies. Awesome shot.
