Bubbles of Glue

After sending me the bubbles from Switzerland Roos remembered the following:

During my trip in India, I met two extraordinary men. They earned their money by blowing glue bubbles and sticking them to each other. The structures that emerged were sold for a couple of india rupee. They also sold things to make it yourself. I found it very particular how they were making these structures so I recorded it. I send you these pictures also because I  think this special piece of art is appropriate for your Blowing Bubbles Day’s. The exact date I can not recall but the photos were taken in Darjeeling, India. I myself did try to make them myself but my bubbles technique could not match theirs, so my respect for these men.

Thanks Roos for sending as well this story and these pictures! It is amazing!

Farewell Party On Top Of The Mountain

Roos Kwakkel writes:
Again I’m  abroad for intern-ships. This time in Switzerland. Again I took a few pictures of bubbles. This time with the Swiss mountains in the background.
I shoot them last Sunday (April 22). This was the last day the pistes here were open for the Season 2011/2012. And this was a farewell party on top of the mountain, near a Ski-Hütte called; Jatzhütte.
I hope this year will be just as successful as last year! Lots of fun and success already for May 6!

Bubbles in front of the Fishtail Mountain, Nepal

Roos Kwakkel did send her beautyful picures of bubbles on the top of the world, Nepal: She wrote:”” Here it is very beautyful! Unfortunately are these mountains not to be seen every day,  but today is a lucky one. It makes my day!”
