If you’ve heard about the bubble universe model (Eternal Inflation) the series of photos by Jason Tozer will remind you of the former. We may never know if theories within the spectrum of Cosmology are right, but it’s good to think beyond the books, approach the subject-matter from a new slant, such as a romantic one by looking at Tozer’s bubbles planets after the jump!
All of these close-up pictures were taken with a Hasselblad with a 135mm lens. Tozer’s work totally reminded me of the still photography taken on Hasselblad cameras during Apollo program missions to the moon, when it was a feat to see human feet making imprints on the satellite’s surface. They also quite remind me of the planet-like bouncy balls that you used to get at toy vending machines.
Lighting is the key word in creating this series of bubble photograpy. Tozer didn’t rely on technology such as “retouching” or “color correction” in the post-edit process. He used a giant dome of acrylic glass to reflect light for greater visibility of the marble-like swirls and patterns on the surface of each bubble. The color of the bubbles are 100% natural. Most of Jason Tozer’s photography is about capturing the moment. You can find more of his series’ on his homepage which include “Ice”, “Smoke”, and ’Breaking Glass".

What makes Game of Thrones one of the most popular shows (if not the most) to date is its beautiful writing. However, let's give credit to the aesthetics, too. The show's pretty consistent and thematic on showing the colors of "ice and fire", a subtle hint of its visual storytelling.
