Title: Cells formed by soapy liquid in cylindrical container

Description: The arrangement of cells formed by soapy water in an enclosed cylindrical container drew my attention while photographing air bubbles rising in a shampoo bottle. Hexagons and pentagons seem to arrange themselves in a regular pattern indicating possibly that there is an optimum accomodation of these geometrical figures under such conditions. These photographs were made in the High Speed Lab at the Imaging and Photo Technology department at the Rochester Institute of Technology.
