I had this idea a few weeks ago. Going through old photos, I found one that was taken in the kitchen when soap bubbles were floating around. The trails left by the bubbles were very interesting... so I decided to try this on a large scale. I purchased "Gazillion bubbles" from Amazon and it fit the job perfectly.

Brendan and I set up shop in an empty parking garage and, with the help of garage lights and a hand-held blue LED, we created some really great stuff.

The setup:

First results:

Tracers from the lights reflecting inside the bubble's membrane (this is a composite of 3 photos): Bubble Motion Tracks

They almost look better in Black & White: Bubble Motion Tracks - BW

Some more landscapes - the first reminds me of a portal to another world, specifically a desert: Bubble Sandscape - The Desert inside the bubble
