Wonderful work, Stephen. Very original with a very squeaky clean theme.

I love the perspective and the composition. When you say "layers" do you mean layers of bubbles, or in your processing? :)

@David: Forgive the double entendre - the line said 'Machaon...working in layers' - referring to the model in the bubbles.

A dear friend provided the outdoor hot tub and poured in the soap. There was just a thin layer of suds floating on the water when he left. His words as he walked away, "You'll get two or three times the bubbles when you turn on the jets."

It took us a while to find the button to turn it on. We weren't prepared for what happened next - as this was ten times the bubbles or more. We had a blast doing this series.
