Polygon Daily Open Thread - Mon July 7 by Shaun McIlroy


Well, hello there. Monday is here. You know what? I agree with you guys, I hate monday. Monday sucks. So rather than something cultural or social, today’s photo series theme is changed into BUBBLES!

Making bubbles for hours, a dream job?

Look at them bubbles! Lots and lots of bubbles!

Hit those bubbles with your balloon! you can do it!

Kids just love em. Just hitting bubbles with their seemingly unlimited energy!

bat bat bat bat bat bat


I'm here to blow bubbles and blow smokes

Selling bubbles all day!

Today, bubbles, tomorrow, the NBA!

C’mon kid, JUMP!
