Savor the Ephemeral Beauty of These Frozen Soap Bubbles

Who said winter is not the right time for soap bubbles?  Look at Pablo Zaluska, who created this video savoring the ephemeral beauty of frozen bubbles! The logic is simple: when the temperature gets cold enough, bubbles will freeze faster than they can pop.

Pablo was inspired to take pictures of frozen bubbles one blistering cold day, after trying to explain to his three-year-old daughter why she needed to wear a warm coat before heading outside. As he told Bored Panda:

I had to figure out an interesting answer which would satisfy a preschooler’s curiosity, so I told her: “It is so cold that even soap bubbles freeze and it looks really beautiful, you know?”

I saw a sparkle in her eyes so I promised to make a film to show her that. She was so excited about this idea that of course she forgot that she didn’t want to put her jacket on. It wasn’t easy to capture those bubbles because only around 5-10% of them didn’t break instantly and as you can imagine it was a challenge to be patient at -15 Celsius. But it was worth it because now that my daughter has seen it, winter is magic for her.

While it’s still March, you still have time to create your own frozen beauties. Don’t forget to share them with us!
