It’s lovely what you can do when you play around with different treatments to your photos.

I just love photography and editing.  This one is a beauty full size

Driving home from a fun filled morning in Gloucester with Snoop Maddie Mad I was lucky that she dozed off just long enough for me to take some nice shots in Essex.

Explore the Secret World of Bubbles

Bubble artist Keith Michael Johnson will entrance youngsters with bubbles that seem to defy the law of gravity when he appears on Saturday, Feb. 6, at 10:30 a.m. in the Brenner Friends Room.

Bubbles are fun to make, but there are reasons why they seem to behave magically. In a program geared to children in grades K-6 and up, the science behind the magic unfolds like a mystery. The audience learns why water won’t make bubbles on its own and where rainbow colors come from.

Johnson notes that for good, clean fun, nothing beats a soap bubble the size of your car. His eye-pleasing tricks include creating bubbles with his bare hands and building a tower of bubbles on top of an inverted glass.

A graduate of Ringling Brothers Clown College and a professional performer for elementary audiences, Johnson uses science and art to help children use their imaginations and creativity to explore and understand the world around them.

The program is appropriate for elementary youngsters and the young-at-heart of all ages. In case of severe weather, the snow date for the event will be Sunday, Feb. 7, at 2 p.m. This event is funded by the Friends of the Rockport Public Library.
