Using nothing but soap and a macro lens, Janet Waters photographs mesmerizing patterns on colored backdrops.
But she hasn’t stopped there, she’s using her Flickr to create a “visual library” for all of her University students. Packed with experimental photo projects galore, her stream is well worth a look.
Bubbles are funny things. And they do especially funny things in threes.
When they roll solo, their natural tendency is to form a sphere. But it turns out that when bubbles are squished together, they prefer to be in trios. When three bubbles come together, they are snug as bugs in rugs.
Take a 360˚ round bubble and divide it into threes. What do you get? You get three 120˚ angles. Now look at those pictures up there again …
Most of those intersections are pretty close to 120˚!! Check out this image from Robert Krulwich:

Red iceberg causes a stir in Greenland
An artist with 780 gallons of red paint, three fire hoses and a 20-member crew at his disposal went to Greenland in search of a blank canvas large enough to accommodate his creative impulse.
The result is a blood-red iceberg now sitting off the country’s western coast.
Quantum dot samples seen in ultraviolet light.
These samples consist of solutions of cadmium selenide (CdSe), which is responding to the ultraviolet light by emitting visible light. The solutions can be engineered to specific wavelengths, and are used for applications such as tracers, the quantum dot samples seen above. The colors correspond to the following wavelengths in nanometers: red (610nm), orange (590nm), green (560nm), blue (480nm), and violet (380nm).
