Every winter Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly in the freezing temperatures blows bubbles that freeze and form beautiful patches of ice crystals. The breathtaking results, which she photographs for her series Life in a Bubble, look like glass or crystal marbles.
Kelly uses a homemade solution of dish soap and water to create the bubbles. Some of the smaller bubbles freeze in mid-air and fall to the ground, shattering upon impact, others crystalize and retain their pristine shape. No two bubbles look the same, as each forms different patterns. Decorated with elegant swirls and scallops, feathery etchings, and snowflake-like designs the frozen globes are truly beautiful.
