My belated photo of the solar eclipse

It wouldn’t be “me” if I posted everything in a timely manner.

On August 21, a total solar eclipse crossed the United States. In my part of NE Ohio, I think we only had 80% – which is still better than nothing haha. But of course, in typical NE Ohio fashion, it’s cloudy and crummy whenever there’s supposed to be something of interest happening in the sky… and it was no different that Monday afternoon.

I took this with my trusty point-and-shoot… and, GASP… I didn’t use a solar filter or anything to protect my lens! And I took glances at the eclipse while wearing my dad’s welder glasses. Sometimes I’m a rebel.

Do you see that little crescent? That’s the eclipse! So I have my own photographic proof of it. 🙂

Sun Setting Soon on 2016 (photo)

This photo is of a recent sunset. Lately our skies have been very dreary and blah, so when I saw this about two weeks ago, I knew that I needed to capture it.

This is likely my last post of 2016. Tomorrow I am relaxing, then simple evening festivities (lots of snacks and playing various games with my parents). I’m planning on an obligatory new-year post for Sunday.

I want to thank everyone who has read my blog this year, and leaving the occasional comment. I sincerely appreciate it all.

I pray that everyone has a fun but safe New Year’s Eve. See you all in 2017!
