Default Transparency -- "I'm forever blowing bubbles..."

This guy is often down at the pier with his giant bubble-making contraption, entertaining kids. The bubbles are often 5-7 feet in size.

This was a particularly difficult shot as the sun had already set below the horizon in the distance.

This one floated away with the sunset's afterglow in the background.

Really fun shots Walter! The bubble in the second shot looks sooo huge compared to the people on the beach.

Wonderful way to meet this challenge. Those bubble making machines are cheap, and anyone can buy one in a decent novelty store. Now how come I never thought about photographing one? Was I too busy going, "Ohh, ahhh...?"

Like the colors in the bubble from the sunset, very neat looking.
