The internet was lit up with it and people all over the world took stunning photos. It was exciting here in Pasadena, too, where the eclipse was merely partial. When the moon got in the sun's way it altered our light, raking it low and gold across porches and lawns, and quieting the birds. Some of my neighbors took fine photos of the eclipse. I didn't manage one.
What cracks me up about this photo is the big shadows made by my ears.
