These aren’t the most sexy Eclipse 2017 pictures you’ll see but they are interesting.
I stood in the same spot and went back every ten minutes to take a picture of the Sun. Because you can’t look at the Sun ( duh) I had to shoot without looking into the camera.
I didn’t know what I would get, but I figured it would be cool.
When I went back and looked at the pictures in order you did see the sun in all of it’s Glory- I didn’t capture the disk, but you can see it get smaller and you can see the sky around it getting a shade darker.
The temperature also dropped a bit.
The birds all went crazy. The crows and pigeons flew around in crazy circles before getting their bearings and heading off to call it a day. It wasn’t dark, but it did look like it was late in the afternoon/early evening.
Also the shadows distorted, which was kind of creepy.
In the last picture in this post, which I took just before the Eclipse was ‘over’ at 10:24, you can see an interesting camera artifact- it’s a purple orb in the top left hand corner.
In case your curious, I watched it from below street level next to the tracks at the King Street Station which was awesome because I didn’t have to talk to anyone.
I’ve been going through Pictures on my FB newsfeed and I guess these photos ARE lame and not very interesting.
But I can say I was there, I wore my Eclipse Glasses and experienced my first Solar Eclipse.
That in itself was amazing.
