A Front Yard Eclipse

May 20, 2012

Years ago, Danny & I travelled all the way to the southern regions of Costa Rica to see an eclipse. This time, one just kind of happened to me without even planning for it.

I noticed the light had got a little odd, a little yellow, while I was working in the studio and Jen was showing our housesitter where things were. But it wasn't until Ellie pointed out this was an eclipse that we sprung into action: viewing the shape of the sun with the bite out of it through tiny holes in paper, and noticing the odd shape of every shadow on the ground or on the Mini.
