It came and it went and it was fun!

I was working today, but fortunately working in a school means lots of people are obsessed with teaching children about special events, so we went outside, we held our pinhole cameras and we watched. And I took my camera.







And you knew I had to show you this!

  1. You've taken some great photos there! I love the ones of the sun against the dark clouds. It was a strange experience, wasn't it, watching the sun appear to look like the moon for a short while! xx

    1. And the cold surprised me a lot; it was cold enough to make my breath mist! Eerie light and chill as well!

  2. You got some good photos of it. I passed lots of children walking to school when I took Archie for his walk this morning and they were all excited about the eclipse, some were taking glasses, others were taking pinhole cameras.

    1. I was very lucky, and I have a good camera that works well. I'm glad you found school children getting excited about it!

  3. I'm glad you work in a school where this sort of thing is still considered important. Sadly my Head wanted everyone to stay indoors.......... too much disruption to learning. Grr. Jx

    1. That makes me cross. Like an eclipse is something that happens every year! If we don't teach young people to stop and appreciate the natural, wonderful phenomenon that is our world, how can we expect them to care for and pass on that love when they're older!!!!

  4. At our school they put up a roll of white paper around the playground fence and got all the children outside to watch the eclipse. It was after all, something that doesn't happen too often, wasn't it? I was at home in the garden and I don't think it got as dark as when the eclipse happened in August 1999. Very eerie shadows though! xx

  5. Great record of the eclipse. We opened the blinds at work so we could see how dark it got, but it was so cloudy no possibility of seeing what happened.
