Solar Eclipses and Sophia

About 70% of the sun was covered by the moon in the early evening of June 10, 2002 in much of North America. Maximum coverage occurred at around 6:20 pm PST, which was still an hour and a half away from sunset this time of year. It would have been great to have been able to see the eclipse with our naked eyes. As it was, the sun was too bright and dangerous to see anything. Many people took out a couple of sheets of paper to make a small pinhole camera to view the eclipse. You can see the results in the image to the right.

This evening, I hung out with Sophia across the Dumbarton Bridge in Fremont. After months of waiting and missed opportunities, I was finally able to see my birthday gift from Sophia: Kenneth Cole Cufflinks! I can’t wait to try them on with my dress shirts. Thanks, Sophia!

We went out to dinner at Pho 99 and had some delectable gelato ice cream afterwards. At one of the strip malls, we used the shiny and reflective windows to create some interesting composite images. Everyone has a good and a bad side to them. Which side do you show to the world?
