Bubble Blitz


SmugMug Daily Link

The Museum of Life and Science in Durham held their annual Bubble Blitz event yesterday, and the boys and I attended and had a great time.  So, you ask, what is Bubble Blitz?  Well, it's an event about the science of bubbles of course.  The kids get to blow bubbles, some of them huge.  They create artwork with bubbles, they make fizzy drinks, and they get to explode Mentos candies in Diet Coke.  You get the gist.  A photographers bubbledise of sorts:-)

Pictured is staff member Ro delighting the kids, and me, by using a very large want to make big bubbles.  When the wind was just right, the bubbles would come lose from the ring and float away as the kids reached up to pop them.  I had the camera in continuous shooting mode, and I took a lot of pics.  Seriously, I'm lucky I've made it through looking at all of them (over 1,100) overnight let alone pp any of them:-)   I kept around 425.

I've got tons more pics from our day too.  Here's the tornado well formed in the WRAL weather area.

I have at least one picture each year since like 2006 of the boys in this butterfly chair.

I've intentionally ignored the butterfly shots that I took.  Maybe tomorrow:-)
