    While photographing the reflection of an old brick mill, I began snapping the bubbles that floated by. Although I could not see the reflection of the bubble with my "real eyes", my camera lens recorded this fascinating image!

    The little world you can see in this bubble reminds me of my mother's favorite poem by William Blake: To see a world in a grain of sand And a heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour
