Solar Eclipse 2017

Solar Eclipse 2017 Huntsville

Already, the historic event is passed and now we find ourselves on the far side of the moon. Here’s one shot I managed to get while the clouds threatened to block the sun and the moon today. In Huntsville, “totality” was only 97% and although they talked about it in the media, I did expect it to get somewhat darker. I didn’t use any special filers on my camera either, and it seems to have worked just fine – having been very careful not to fix my gaze upon the sun. The clouds actually acted as filter in this shot, and it wouldn’t have been as good if I had used a filter.

    The New Rainbow Coalition!

    I know, sounds kinda political. Just couldn’t resist. Because, “I’m Bluebird on a telegraph line…” Instead, here’s a break from the annals of humdrum conventions and a little reverie from the entertainment world. Pop super star Elton John is making a rare appearance in Huntsville tomorrow, which prompted me to dig a couple of original […]

    Presidential Reality Check

    The reality is, you have been lied to by both major political parties. Understanding what is important in this election depends on understanding what is real, and what is true. The United States economy is in decline. The fact is, since the inevitable lowering of trade barriers decades ago through NAFTA and GATT, jobs in […]
