These amazing black and white bubble photos are in fact telescopic images of what happens when oil meets water. I love the beauty and elegance of the pictures in black and white.
They are taken by the young Phoenix-based photographer Shawn Knol, who likes to explore the world through the lens of his canon 8mpxl rebel xt camera. On a shoestring budget, he shoots all kinds of fluids mixing and the photos are truly remarkable.
