The Weekend in Black and White


While passing Books Direct in Letterkenny I realised that they'd had a delivery.
The shop is very small, and they stock a LOT of books, so the packaging had to wait outside.
The large-pocketed bubble-wrap was an unusual cloudy grey colour.

I never would have thought of photographing bubble wrap. These photographs turned out so well.

I love to squeeze this. Unique subject indeed for Black and White.

Interesting and cool shots!

James said...

I've never seen bubble look so good! Very well done!

Marie said...

I do agree with David. Interest subject. Looks great in b&w.

Dimple said...

I probably would have passed this up, as well. Good imaginative eye!

I have only seen clear ones. Lovely photo of them.

Cildemer said...

Very nice one! Would have burst all the bubbles before thinking of taking a pic! He he he;o)

They looks like they want to be smashed :)

Kitty said...

It looks so comfy :) Weren't you tempted to pop it?

Lesley said...

the grey shows up the detailing much more than the clear would. then again, were these in my hands, they would have been popped long before I thought of photographing them!

Irene said...

Interesting and creative! Well done!

LauraX said...

what a fun choice for a subject!

Woody said...

I like the color changes and there are really interesting lines and textures. Great catch!

Funny but those photos remind me of what are known in Hong Kong as "kai tan chai" (i.e., "little egg") waffles...

See the link (not to my blog but someone else's) for a photo:-

It looks so good :)

Interesting!

These photos reminds me of my mother pressing the bubbles so that it would burst. Each time she buys a glassware, she would ask to wrap it with lots of bubble wrap, not just for the protection of glass ware but to play with it :))

Wonderful, subtle variety of tones and even patterns! Fascinating!

A wonderful subject for B&W! It looks more interesting
than bubble wrap, that's for sure.

The true artist sees where others are blind. You are a true artist. I'm reminded of MC Escher.

Genie said...

Your bubble wrap have given it a totally new avenue....art! Your pictures are awesome. I just love looking at them...and wow, do they look great in black and white. You are so clever. Never would I have thought to shoot these fascinating little plastic bubbles filled with air. Your selections this week are wonderful.

brings back memory. Some years ago I had gymclasses for kids. On my work we got some of those bubble wraps. Instead of throwing tehm away I took it to the gymclass. Guess if the kids had fun jumping on them untill all bubbles had smashed. With a big bang. :) That was so much fun. :)

Popping bubble wrap was one of my favourite ‘toys’ to play with.:)
Have a blessed weekend!

I join the who say they'd pop the bubbles before thinking of shooting them. I'm going to need a lot of bubble wrap when I start packing for our big move in a few months time. Creative b+w images!

Great idea! It reminds me somehow the "water cube" http://en.beijing2008.cn/46/39/WaterCube.shtml ...
