The eclipse was beautiful. Seeing the moon cover the sun through a piece of dark glass was quite nice, but for me the best thing was how in every place where the light poked through a shadow it cast an image of the crescent sun, pinhole-camera style. So the shadows of the leaves cast a blanket of sickles across the street. Shadows of fingers made it look like people had moons in their hands. Those with frizzy hair had celestial crowns.
I am a stupid person for not taking pictures!
