Dish Soap Abstract


Kinda makes me think ‘The Matrix’. With Apple Blossom Scent.

  1. I feel like I should send you a picture of my dirty dishes.

    This is a cool picture — I don’t think I’ve ever seen soap suds in cross-section before.

    • I think it’s so cool you say that, Nancy – I did one a long time ago and I was reminded of that, too. I think this one is interesting, maybe, but the level bubble was a lot ‘simpler / cleaner’ – which I tend to like.

  2. so cool and fun! love the rich texture.
    but those very tiny bubbles on the far right on the lower half of your image are another matter altogether. they appear to be quietly brewing and scheming up something huge….. and for some strange reason i am reminded of movie, ‘the attack of the killer tomatoes’. not that i am necessarily endorsing nor dissing that movie. not sure if you ever saw it but there were even three sequels, none of which i have yet seen. one of them apparently stars George Clooney, by the way.
    in any case, it looks as if you have a spin-off in the making here: the threat of the green apple blossom bubbles…..
    that’s what comes to mind as i look at this, but i digress terribly once again. urk. anyhow, thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • You know… I don’t think I’ve ever seen that movie! Which seems sad – I’ve certainly heard of it before. Well, the original, anyway (this is the first I knew of there being sequels – wild – now I’m WAY behind)! Hmm… do you think I can convince Clooney to wash the dishes?! Might be good research for any upcoming films. Or maybe not… but still.
      Thank you very much, P&K – what a kind and generous comment, as always!

      • and also a bit silly and completely irrelevant too, that info. not necessarily movies to add to your bucket list either, but there it is. in any case Clooney washing the dishes. sounds like a plan. good luck with that and do keep us posted! 🙂

        • Sometimes a movie that doesn’t require too much heavy-lifting is the perfect thing, though! So I’ll definitely have to keep it in mind! Hahaha… indeed – it might be a bit of a wait!

  3. Great composition.
    “Carbonated Soylent Green ! The effervescent energy drink of the future. Aged to Perfection.” 😀
    I do not know where this stuff comes from, your posts & images are just inspirational in so many ways.

    • Thank you very much, Mary! Nothing too complicated, really – just put the bottle in a dark room and lit it from underneath. Hahaha… well, it shouldn’t have been complicated, but you know… I have a way of making things complicated.

    • Thanks, U.M! I’m happy to hear you liked this one… I keep going back and forth. I tried to cut back on any lighting (other than from underneath) to reduce glare / reflections / etc. on the bottle, but now I’m wondering about that… maybe a hint of another source would have helped a bit… hmm…

  4. It looks like alien’s fluid! 😀
    I just re-watched D-9 last night. I hope that you don’t mind me relating everything that I see today to alien. 😀

    • Thank you, S.E! I liked this one at first, but now I’m not so sure…
      I still like the concept, but I think I might have to experiment with a bit of a different lighting set-up, etc…

  5. This could be grasshopper
