so thin, yet so strong

Yesterday in the lab I experimented with pushing objects through soap film, and was amazed that the syringe, shown below, passed through it without breaking the film. We can see the the lower half of the syringe quite clearly although it is actually behind the film. The bubbles and dark elliptical shape mark the point where the syringe passes through.

Below is an image of soap film at a later stage, when it begins to turn black. I liked the contrast between the two areas; two stages coexisting:

Below are a couple of light images I took today of light and glass. I felt they had a suitably cool, wintery mood; the lower one reminded me of frost needles.
