Hot: Boiling

This idea hit me quickly, and I jumped to do it just in case anyone else had the same idea. Not only did I have and idea but knew how to do it too. It was crazy!!!



I took this in my kitchen with our wonderful red sauce pot. (which had to be scoured) I put some water in and let it boil. I originally was going for the steam out of the pot but the bubbles looked so cool when I caught them in the camera. In PS I cropped just a little, and boosted the color by saturating it. The red pot just wasn't red enough.

LOVE that red red pot!!!! Seriously, when I grow up, I'm gonna get me a set of bright red pots!

I clicked on this picture and the close up of the boiling water is SOOOOOOOO AWESOME! I love the idea too-- dang wish ideas just COME TO ME like yours did! Great job!

I've tried taking pictures of steaming things before, and it never works for me. Great job getting the bubbles in focus. And I love the red pot!

Love it! The angle is awesome, the bubbles are eye-catching and the red pot lends a burst of color. Way to go Crys!

Oooh, it almost looks like boiling sugar... thick and gooey. Bubbles are so much fun to take pictures of... I was boiling an egg a few weeks ago and had to grab my camera! Oh, and I love red. Good job filling the frame too!

Great picture! I love the texture of the bubbles being in focus. It looks great.

How come I don't have a red pot?

I thought of doing this too, but I'm glad you did it first because you did a great job! The boiling water looks SUPER cool--so textured!

I like it! It feels hot to me. Other thoughts might be an off-center crop or a lower angle with more red pot? This is awesome!
