Frozen in a Bubble is a fun series by Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly, in which she takes unbelievable photos of frozen bubbles. Earlier this month, when the weather hit 9˚C to 12 ˚C, Angela and her 7-year old son went out to blow bubbles and take photos of the bubbles made from dish soap, karo syrup, and water. The bubbles would crystallize as soon as they floated in the air, making some of them come crashing to the ground and shattering on impact. The ones that survived the fall provided beautiful and awe-inspiring shots for the photographer.

KOMO news interviewed her recently, and this was what she had to say of the surreal experience, ‘We blew the bubbles across the top of our frozen patio table and also upon the hood of my car and then we watched in awe as each individual bubble froze with their own unique patterns. We noted how they would freeze completely before the sun rose but that once the sun was in view they would defrost along the tops or cease freezing altogether. We also noted how they would begin to deflate and implode in on themselves making them look like alien shapes or in some cases shatter completely leaving them to look like a cracked egg’.
