Well I'm very late to the game on this post so I apologize, about 10 days late to be exact. Which would make the timeliness of this rather irrelevant, but I wanted to make a post about it anyway.
August 21, 2017, a nearly once in a lifetime opportunity. Unfortunately, I had to work the day of the eclipse so my day went a little like this:
Work at 6;30am. Serving customers starting at 6;45am. Serving a never-ending stream of people all the way up until about 1:30pm when the place suddenly cleared out and all of my coworkers and I were able to view the eclipse. We patiently waiting, glasses in hand. I had not been able to purchase a filter so I only intended on photographing those watching, not the actual eclipse. However, a man with some interesting galvanized glass lent me a piece to photograph for a second. Here are the images I came out with.
