Jam jar outside with some sparkling water - dull day- and some coloured card.



Used 35mm macro + extension tube. Bit of a crop and flipped the image.

Thanks Larry and Franz.

Franz, sorry, .. flipped is probably the wrong word for this. The image is rotated 180 degrees...

So it's upside down.

It was a jam jar which is perhaps octagonal (I'll take a pic tomorrow) - not the typical round one. (Aldi rhubarb and vanilla jam!!)

Flourescent cards were placed underneath the glass.

Camera .. Olympus e520, 35mm macro, 25 mm extension tube.

F6.3, 1/250 sec, iso 200.

No flash. (It would probably have bounced off the glass!!)

There was sparkling water in the jar but at first there were no bubbles and I took pictures of the edge of the water which I might post tomorrow as they are interesting.

Then when I added more water... bubbles appeared.



I will take a pic of the whole lot tomorrow to show you.

Bubbles can be difficult because they appear out of nowwhere and get bigger and bigger until they burst. Some of them burst in the background making a mess of the image.

It was taken in the garden.

This kind of stuff is addictive because no two shots are the same.

I'm fascinated by this image! It's lovely, and it's completely mysterious. Very Happy

Without your explanation, I would have no idea what I'm looking at or how it was shot. With your explanation, and standing on my head, I think I get it --- these are a couple of rising bubbles captured just before they hit the surface, seen against the colored background and reflected in the water surface.

Do I have that right?? Confused

That's pretty much it, Rik! Very Happy

Did some bubbles last year by accident - against clear blue sky.. might have posted one or two but got no comments. (They weren't really like this though...!!)

Then I thought I'd do one on my partner's red car out the front... used a pint glass with those, but discovered that many bubbles were out of focus and it only dawned on me recently to find a container with more of a flat surface... and why not coloured card.??!! The coloured card would save a lot of thinking as to where I'd go next. Location and surroundings does play a part in the bubble.

I did one with the glass infront of one of the cats.

Might post one from out the front tomorrow... with the pint glass... as you can see the glass in it!!

Last year's lot produced mostly duds. My World... from last year...

This time round, a few more keepers. Very Happy

Larry the jam is yummy if you have an Aldi near you. I had it at a friend's house first before I discovered it. (jelly.. now that's something with gelatine in it - not vegetarian!! Very Happy )

I learned it that "jam" is made from crushed fruit and "jelly" is made from filtered juice. Jams are translucent and a bit mushy. Jellies are transparent and more crisply gelled.

"Jell-O" is a brand name for a series of gelatin deserts. The original version consisted mainly of gelatin plus color and flavor, no actual fruit in sight.

What things do you folks mean by "jam" and "jelly"?

Yep your JellO is like our Jelly. Comes in cubes and you disolve it in boiled water. Jam is preserve. Made from actual fruit and sugar and eaten on toast or teacakes. Marmalade is similar

Here's one done with a pint glass - you can see the shape in the bubbles- taken out the front of the house.

Having seen the shot several times before. I have just noticed that each bubble looks like a smiling face.

An excellent image, however considered.

As a part-time professional (retired) preserves maker and seller (via Country Markets, formerly W I Markets) I can clarify (pun not intended) the jelly situation. Jelly is the same as jam, except that the fruit is cooked and then strained to remove pips/stones, skins, etc.. The sugar is then added (recipes usually specify so much per volume of juice) and boiled to setting point.

Jellies are stored in jars smaller than those usually used for jam, as agitation can break up the jelly structure.

Jams and jellies, under UK law* must contain a minimum of 60% by weight of sugar.

* Something for a wet weekend:

I find that "inverted" works for me.
