This one is from a few years ago when I was looking for photo opportunities on the South Bank, near the London Eye.
I saw this children's street entertainer with these huge bubbles, the kids were mesmerised, so was I until I saw a few shots.
View the WORKSHOP for the bigger picture and who is making the bubbles.

The chosen POV really makes it look that these people are engulfed in the bubble. Love the rainbow colours on the bubble. The riders on the ride in the BG creates good drama. Nice one, thanks for sharing.

A lovely photo where you managed to include every colour available. People are enjoying themselves on the ground and high up in the air. The "tower" and the high building give the view a very attractive vertical emphasis and the trees create a fine background to the persons in the street. I like the brightness and clarity very much.

this picture is unique in its arrangement, a very lovely and interesting street scene. There's great depth in your broad vertical frame and we can find interest everywhere. Each of the people has an attractive individuality and it's fun to see how you brought them together within a frame. The people flying around above are so delightful to watch, the buildings and the greenery provide a wonderful, intriguing context. The light and the colours are vivid and agreeable but this picture doesn't rely on their attractiveness so much -in my opinion, the composition would work out in any format. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Interesting mixture with the concrete building high rise, sky wheel, park background then the large iridescent bubble.
A bubble this huge is difficult to create.

There is something quite hypnotic and calming about watching the prismatic colours closely when the bubble swirls and changes. You've captured the 'essence of bubble' brilliantly and this obviously appeals, i would have cropped the distraction above thus focusing on the bubble world on bigger scale. Great attempt at something different, Congrats

What an amazing capture ! Very good choice of portrait format which embraces perfectly your compo.
But my favorite in this compo is, that everyone is looking tot he photographer, the baby in his chart full in his (or her) own World !
TFS and bes regards

Oh, yes, this is amazing street scene, I have always try to take some photos through the bubbles, sometime it gives funny effect. Thanks for so warm summer photo, excellent colors and details! I like the WS photo too. Simple but interesting amusement!

It was a good idea to post the workshop photo. At the first look I didn't know the real dimensions of the bubble and wondered about the fish-like shape.

A superb daily life scene from London. Although I didn't go in I did walk across Westminster bridge. Excellent sharpness and a nice decisive moment shot of the rainbow hued bubble in the fg. The people animate the scene. Tfs!

I love the frame you have on this, allowing so much of the scene in. The bubbles and their magical colors alone are a brilliant scene, but so much is added by the spinning carnival rid above, and the fine framing by the building on the left. The whole scene is bursting with life and color. You have a vey cool gallery.

Most-impressive are those students astronauts practicing for extra-vehicular activities and the giant bubble giving sense to "outer-space oxygen source"!
