We gave our son one of those big bubble makers for Easter. As soon as the rain temporarily stopped, he went outside in the backyard and started tomake huge bubbles. I though it had good photographic potential. Here's the result.

Tullio,

The picture is superb and so is the bubble. But....

I thought and thought about this several times and actually went away and came back. I don't think this technically meets the challenge. It's not really water we're looking at but a soapy solution or something chemically similar.

Yes, I know I'm probably going to be slam dunked.

Yes, sea water is a saline solution, yes even pristine rainwater is laced with pollutants, but all of these tend to be predominantly water with traces of additives.

Aloha

Thanks for allthe comments. To be honest, selvin, I did not think twice to post the picture since w/o water there would be no soapy solution. The bottle does not indicate theactual concentration of the bubble solution but I recall when I was a kid, all it took was a tiny drop of detergent mixed with a bottle of water to make bubble. Oh well, you can go ahead and delete the entry.
