Frozen bubbles

Why is my mom so delighted in this picture?
Because she's blowing bubbles.
And they're freezing.

The mystical land where windchills reach -35 degrees and bubbles frost over like magic.

The swirling living rainbows freeze with a puff of steam into frosty globes, and if the cold gets to be too much for their fragile solid soapy skins, they shatter, and glittering bubble shards rain down. 

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

-Roald Dahl

  7. Wow! Frozen bubbles, that's a new one. Great pics!

  8. What if magic isn't something that you choose? What if it's not something that chooses you? What if magic is something so closely related to beauty that you must first learn to see it, then to practice it, then do capture it - for the enchanting of others?
