A collection of distilled sarcastic wisdom, numerous photographs, discussions of books and stuff to learn and more stuff to think about from a retired economics professor turned blogger and photographer.
Partial eclipse. I couldn't see the moon when it first was supposed to come up and then it was just a little dark blob that couldn't be photographed. So I missed out on the photographic opportunity of the year. All I managed to get was this bit of chewed up eclipse. Then the full moon appeared, but so what? I'm mad that I couldn't get the moon shots I planned on getting.
So how can you tell that this perfect circle is actually the moon and not a piece of paper cut out with a cookie cutter? And how did the moon get to be so round? Just wondered. I didn't pay attention in 7th grade science when Mrs. Strong had a little model that showed how the planets went this way, the sun that way, and here goes the moon. I was too dumb to ever figure it out. What a shame.
