Got in to my car the other day and saw all these delightful little bubbles on my windshield. Rule number one of being a photographer is always have a camera handy, which I did. So I squeezed off a few frames and my only regret was that the background was so gray. When I ingested the pictures later I realized that my white balance setting on the camera was off, which left me with a much more appealing blue photo. Bad for portraits of people, good for bubbles on glass. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition of the Daily Herald.
