What Happens When You Blow Bubbles in Freezing Cold Weather?

Instead of snuggling up inside under a warm, cozy blanket when the weather turned bitter with severe wind chills in Arlington, Washington, one photographer braved the freezing cold and made the most of it. Angela Kelly sees the beauty that is constantly around us but often missed. With the eyes of an artist, and the playfulness of a child, Kelly turned the innocent and fun game of blowing bubbles into amazing works of art:

In the early mornings of a very cold December, Kelly and her son mastered the art of creating and visually capturing frozen bubbles. Using a homemade concoction that combined dish soap, water, and Karo syrup, and with a little practice, they were able to blow bubbles that instantly froze, each one with its own unique, intricate patterns and characteristics.

The images are truly stunning, inspiring and just plain fun. As Kelly says,

“Are we ever too old to play with bubbles?”
