Sunday Selections was originally brought to us by Kim, of Frogpondsrock, as an ongoing meme where participants could post previously unused photos languishing in their files.
Huge thanks to Cie who gave me this wonderful Sunday Selections image.
The meme was then continued by River at Drifting through life. Sadly she has now stepped aside (though she will join us some weeks), and I have accepted the mantle.
The rules are so simple as to be almost non-existent. Post some photos under the title Sunday Selections and link back to me. Clicking on any of the photos will make them embiggen.
I usually run with a theme. We have had a mostly mild winter. Last Monday the forecast was for a chilly start to the day. A forecast which was realised.
My inner child did happy dances when I got up and realised it was -5C and the temperature was going down. Shortly after first light I went out and spent a happy hour blowing and freezing soap bubbles and early risers in the street (yet again) saw mad woman with camera dances.
As an aside, Jazz lasted outside for less than fifteen minutes. What a wuss of a cat.
When the bubbles are first blown they retain their beautiful iridescence, which quickly ices over.
I loved the reflections in this shot. In some of the others you will see selfies. Or as close as I come to selfies.
I find the shell they leave behind when they collapse fascinating.
Lots and lots of frozen bubbles.
A bubble with a slow leak.
I finally came inside and had a cuppa and a shower. When I was dressed again, I looked outside and the lawn was still covered in frozen bubbles (some of which lasted more than two hours). So of course I went out again. And no, we hadn't yet reached positive temperatures.
You can even see a hole in this shot. And still it stayed inflated.
I was fascinated to see that the frozen bubbles had collected a layer of frost. Lots of people don't welcome our chilly weather. I do.
