    Windex Bubbles

    This is what happens when you blow into a straw inserted in Windex. C&C is encouraged, though I don't have any particular concerns.

    Looks like a round version of the Bird's Nest Stadium in Beijing.

    A really beautiful shot imho - I like very much.

    A neet shot mike. The B&W works well with it. Lots of lines, shapes, and tones in the bubbles. How about a close up next time. Just by zooming in on the screen makes for a whole different image. Break out the macro lens.

    Thanks, guys!

    Steve: I've thought of renting a macro lens some weekend for use in my makeshift studio. Perhaps you'll loan me yours.

    The closest focusing distance on my 300mm lens is 9 feet. Not practical for use in my makeshift studio, which is 6 feet x 8 feet.
