I have had this idea in my head for such a long time.
I was actually waiting to do this for when it hits the minus 40°C but I figured minus 31° would also work 😀
I was full of anticipation, full of energy, full of excitement, full of childlike eagerness, full of wonder, full of happy. So I dressed warm and – two pairs of socks, two pair of pants, two sweaters, thermal boots, two pair of gloves later – I grabbed my camera and my little bubble maker that I bought at the kids store. What an adventure!!
Okay…… a couple of things:
- There was too much wind so my bubbles blew away before I could focus.
- My bubble maker froze solid within two minutes :O
- I froze solid (well almost…) after five minutes.
- So did my camera.
Yes, I could dress warmer BUT you can not work the camera with woolen mittens on. I should have needed a helper outside, someone that could blow bubbles for me! Any volunteers? I could also try adding more soap to my bubble water, maybe it would freeze slower?
So what happened to the bubbles blown, you ask? They froze! Haha!! I could pick them up 😀 . I managed to blow quite a few bubbles in under two minutes so there were SOOOO many frozen bubbles on the ground in front of me. Add an awesome sunset to that and voila, you have a photoshoot.
I am definitely going to try this again, it was fun! But the whole adventure was over in under 15 minutes….. I spent more time dressing for being outside than actually being outside. It sure was cold! 🍃🍃
