This is perhaps my favorite of all the color schlieren photographs that I took with Doc Edgerton. The surface of the soap bubble has tiny rivers of liquid flowing down from the air hose. The rainbows on the bubble are thin film interference patterns. 1/3rd micro-second exposure. The bubble breaks very slowly compared to the time it takes the bullet to leave the scene.
