“I lost my prescription sunglasses during the wild and crazy weeks of October 2014 during which we were on the road most of the time. I don’t know precisely when they vanished or where.“
OK, I took third and fourth sentence but I felt it needed some explanation. I don’t feel the need to include this in my post, since every half an hour my sentence in real life is “Where are my glasses?”
I am a member of “I lose my glasses AT LEAST three times a day” group on Facebook, it is THAT serious. And, in fact I don’t have them on right now. Where are they?
Just a sec…
Found them. On a table. Three rooms away.
So, If by any chance I end up on a road for some time, this sentence could became mine.
Also, I found incredible page with stunning photos every day which have provided my curious mind with incredible photos of a Solar Eclipse from few days ago. Do check it out if you like awesome stuff: APOD.nasa
Hey! I really had to come here just to post this, I would not be me if I didn’t. 😀
Tomorrow is a Solar Eclipse!
AND it is visible in Europe! For the first time since 1999.! Which I remember, by the way. 🙂 That does not mean that there were no Solar Eclipses in between (2006., 2011.) but none as visible as the one in 1999.
Here is the map of where it will be visible and I think you can get the info of when at your local online media.
And now, lets get more sciency. Is that a word? Now it is. 😉
What causes a solar eclipse?
A solar eclipse happens whenever the new moon passes in front of the sun, and the moon’s shadow falls on our planet. A solar eclipse is only possible at new moon because that’s the only time whereby the moon to go in front of the sun, as seen from Earth. Most of the time, however, the new moon either swings north or south of the solar disk, so no eclipse of the sun takes place.
Why new moon? On the day of new moon, the moon rises when the sun rises. It sets when the sun sets. It crosses the sky with the sun during the day. (source: earthsky.org)
Protect your eyes.
Do not look directly at the Sun. 😦 It causes permanent damage to your eye and possible blindness. That is no fun. That’s why you can look at the Solar Eclipse through glasses design for it and better telescopes with filters design for it. Also, you can catch a glimpse through a glass covered in carbon black, but that is not recommended. The best way to look at it is to make your projector. It is simple and instructions are here:MAKE YOUR PROJECTOR
Oh I can’t wait for professional photos of tomorrows Solar Eclipse and images from ISS (International Space Station) 😀
There is not much to say… I need my glasses to see clearly, and although I did wear contacts, they are a bit to expensive because I have a different diopter on each eye… But I don’t mind them, most of the time. They are the biggest problem at summer time, I can’t swim with them 😦 So I end up staring at random people at the beach or pool. 😀
Plus, I wanted to do photos of real windows. This is the truth and I kid you not, every time I look through a window I look at the sky. That is why sunsets photos are never-ending inspiration to me…
I am a bit late with this one, but as they say better late than… Well they say a lot of things. 😉
Photographing sunsets has really became a habit of mine, a really enjoyed and instinct one. When ever the sky is somewhat clear and I see the sun tossing the light in the kitchen (which means it is close to going down the horizon) I jump and grab my camera. EVERY TIME. 🙂
The second habit, also a positive and sometimes annoying one is my cat. Feeding her, taking care of her, playing with her. This is her spot where she is the closest to the kitchen as she can be, because she is not allowed in. So she keeps guard, watch what we are doing and constantly begging for food when someone is eating. She has to be the inspector and is always on alert. I think you can see that very well on the third photo.
Enjoy life as much as you can… Go outside for walks as much as you can because… “The winter is coming.” 🙂
I have snapped a few (dozen) amazing photos lately… And when I say they are amazing, they really are… For now, they go in my “everything” folder, until I find the time and until there comes a topic in which they will fit. 🙂
Photography is starting to be more than a hobby for me, it is a form of my self-expression. 🙂
Ladybugs have always been special in my heart. It is said that they bring luck and even though I don’t consider myself superstitious, I never killed a ladybug and I’m always very happy to see them. They are like tiny carriers of good news there are yet to come and positive outcome I can’t see yet.
Also on the right I captured beautiful blue sky. I am lost in blue… It connects me with sea, sky, rivers… My being deeply craves blue as the color of water.
White is my “chalkboard” of life. It is a plain piece of paper and the thought of it brings out the joy of writing in me.
Red color of ladybug is my most loved color. It is the color of courage and staying with both feet firmly on the ground for me. It is being realistic and seeing things clearly.
Even the black dots on ladybug have their meaning for me. It is supposedly the number of years ladybug have, but sadly, they live approximately only two or three years. The black is the negative. No white in life is complete without black, that’s why the ying yang sign has both of them. Hapiness-sadness, joy-pain, compassion-judgement… The dots are small compared to the white area, as I hope the negative things in life will be. 😉
