Soap suds in a glass?

Nice clean image. I love the hint of rose color.

those shapes are awesome, I'd have to go with what Duck says - except, can't understand how they are so flat. So I'll say soap suds squeezed between two sheets of glass.

Duck, Piet,

Correct, your majesties. I was washing a milk bottle and partly filled it to set aside so that it would cover the ring and dissolve it. I noticed rainbows from window reflections in the suds but they didn't appear in the photo. So, I set the bottle on a red book cover. Voila. Don't know why the bubbles get flatter toward the top of the suds. I thought it might have something to do with fractals and gravity. So I was going to call the froth "frubbles." Or grubbles. Or gractals.

Many thanks.

Matt

Surface tension becomes thinner due to gravity as the bubbles rise to the top. The hexagonal structure is from the cell wall abutting each other with no smaller bubbles as filler in between cells (as in the lower levels). But then, I'm getting a little too geeky now so I'll quietly leave... (...*)

Didn't I tell you it was gravity? Matt

Both of these are very interesting, and I wouldn't have guessed the subject, was gonna guess styrofoam in some form of undoing.

I like this game. I think we should invent a challenge about it. Take pictures that others have to guess what they are.

When I was a kid, there was a contest like this in every issue of some magazine, for some reason I'm thinking Readers Digest. It was on the back inside page and consisted of several photos you had to identify. I can't remember whether the answers were in the same issue or the following one but I always played along to try and figure them out. I haven't thought of that in years!

Not to name names, but there are iterations of this game on other photo forums. I've always enjoyed playing them and thought it might be fun to do so here. I even like the name "Photo Rorschach"
