  1. “If you still have your retinas … ”

    Saw great coverage of the total eclipse on the Weather Channel today … wish I could’ve been at one of those “hot spots” myself.

    But nope, I was in my backyard in Trumbull, and my iPhone pics looked just like the first Compo pic here, around 2:45 today, with no discernible moon shape … just a hint of the muted glare of the sun.

    Wish I’d thought ahead of time to get a pair of those safe-viewing glasses. Oh well.

  2. someone has to be inspired to paint by that first photo Munch/Van Gogh?Two of our kids are down in Charleston SC and said the experience was simply surreal!
