January 2014. It’s been unseasonably chilly, to say the least. Washington-based photographer Angela Kelly brings us a stunning gallery of photographs in the Huffington Post of what happens to a blown bubble when it’s exposed to extremely cold temperatures? “It turns out that the soapy orbs crystallize when faced with freezing temperatures from around nine to 16 degrees Fahrenheit, morphing into fragile, glass-like sculptures.” Well, not here in Chicago. At minus 27 degrees C., it’s too cold.
