Pink Bubbles! by MaryLynn

Canvas Prints

Available to buy on…

For my birthday a friend gave me a clear paper weight that has ‘bubbles’ in it. It is very simple..and my first thought was “cool – something to play with for macro photography”!!!

This was captured with a ‘pink swirled’ file folder underneath it – left hand holding folder and paper weight and right hand holding camera! Fun….yes, one of 100+ shots…but I liked this one the best. Would appreciate any feedback. If it wasn’t 9 degrees outside, I would have played with natural sunlight!

Captured with a Nikon D5000 and an AF-S Micro Nikkor 85mm lens (no filters) and no Photoshop. As is!

I am an amateur photographer who has lived my entire life in the Midwestern United States – Minnesota, Iowa, South Dakota and now Nebraska! I work full-time as a Marketing Director (analytical…not creative!) for Oriental Trading Company (a toys and novelty company) and find my camera a great place to ‘just hang’ when I’m not in the office or busy at home.

Enjoy – and feel free to leave a comment!!!

    Very nicely done, MaryLynn! A beautiful work – lovely lighting and colours! Aren’t they such a fun subject? I have a slew of these, all using different paperweights and lighting, but after posting a few and getting the “chirping of the crickets”, I didn’t bother with any more!

  • Mike, thanks for the fave, comment and the add! This paper weight has sooo many options – it was a gift, but the box it came in had the store name on it…so I called them and they said they were out! Where do you find yours?

    This one was a gift from a friend. It’s from Malta. But my others, including the gold one, were picked up at a marvellous department store we have in Canada called Winners. Lots of neat stuff at pretty good prices. I think I paid about 8 bucks each for them and they’re about the size of a large grapefruit. They have all kinds of glassware and I’m always checking out their stocks to see what’s new and if there’s anything worth “playing” with!

  • Thanks Mike! Appreciate your help…let’s keep each other updated with our paper weights. :)
