My focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain, mock the pain, reduce it. And laugh. - Jim Carrey
I was delighted to see that this week’s Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge is focus, and we all know how much I love tweaking the focus to alter your perspective. I’m all about the focus, that narrow depth of field. Speaking of which, today’s mystery “what is it?!?” picture is ready for you to ponder. Do you know? Can you tell?
What Is It?!?
What Was That?!? Yesterday’s Picture (Day 234)
Yesterday’s subject was one I’ve posted before, but converting the image to black and white totally changed the perspective. Eric thought it looked like eggs, but not eggs. And then we had quite the guessing game between Brenda and Tracy! Soap suds? No. Bubbles? Well, kind of. (Bubbles of what?) Milk? Not milk. Bubble bath? No. Remember, these are “kind of” bubbles … it happens when you … Brenda: “Did you reverse the light and dark?” Only converted to black and white. Tracy: “Shoot that’s what I thought!” Brenda: “Well, she’s being tricky. Her hint was more confusing than helpful… I have this vague suspicion she’s changed the color tone and reversed it or something. Like maybe it’s coffee.” (And yes, I’ve been known to do such a thing.) Tracy: “Yes I agree Brenda!!!! I’m wondering about bubbles from some kind of fish.. Or amphibian….” Not fish, amphibian, or coffee. It’s a reaction … does that help? Brenda: Baking soda and vinegar? Not baking soda and vinegar. Is it oil cooking? Well, it’s oil but it’s not cooking … It’s oil and … Tracy: Vinegar and baking soda? “Ok… My son is looking at it trying to figure it out…corn starch and water? Drops of water on the corn starch… Or flour…yeast bubbles? Ha lots of guesses!!!” It does have water involved, but not with cornstarch, flour, or yeast bubbles. It is water and …
Notice that Brenda knows part is water and Tracy knows part is oil … and after a bit of leading each down the correct path, both rang the ding-ding-ding winning bells! Yes, what you saw was oil and water. I shook the water and oil together so the oil would form bubbles.
