Soap Bubbles

by Sigrid Strohschneider-Laue May. 22, 2018 1649 views

Last Sunday we went for a stroll through Prater to photograph something different from flowers. Something we only do, when family and friends with children come for a sightseeing visit. Therefore at least ten years passed since our last Prater tour. The weather was perfect and thousands of people were everywhere, which was less perfect.

On the meadows were people sitting and children playing. A young man produced soap bubbles - he was really good at it and he could have a big career as a politician.

I saw a little bit to late the soap bubbles flying all over the place. I should have go back in the middle of the action and photograph right there, but it was at the end of our visit and I was already tired and too lazy to go back.

Nevertheless I shot a lot of pictures. Some pictures are really nice, but I'm a little bit concerned about the rights. There were a lot of children playing and I actually don't know, if it would be allowed to photograph them by accident - of course not on purpose! In the end I did a lot of post processing, which isn't a hobby of mine, to cut them out of the pictures or to change their appearance beyond recognition.

Maybe I should call the outcome the imperfection of soap bubbles.

Danke! Ich fand das Foto witzig, weil es sich auf die schillernden Punkte reduziert. #1 habe ich großzügigst  zusammengeschnitten - eben wegen der Bildrechte. Eigentlich wäre es ein sehr herzig Foto, so ist es eher schräg.

Fun outing! Kool bubbles! Not sure what the rules for privacy in public areas might be, where you live....

I'm always careful with children, but the little girl was so excited - heart warming!

Your editing did convey a sense of strangeness to the pictures that I like a lot. I've searched about the legality of taking people pictures in Austria and it seems (with some exceptions) there is no problem.

Thanks for looking up this legal problem. Lately there is again a lot of discussion going on. I didn't want to have some angry parents on my front porch - back in the 1990s maybe I would have been one of them. confused
Actually I'm angry about myself, that I didn't go back  - not only for better picture. I didn't give "Mr. Soap Bubble" some money. He worked and he paid the material - just for my fun! Next time I won't forget this duty! clap moneybag
