This is not really an update but a new post, nonetheless *grins*.
The longest total solar eclipse of the century had happened last July 22, well, as I am a Philippine resident, I was only a spectator of a partial one but being a part of something monumental as such is a good enough opportunity for me. It had happened a week ago, why am I only writing about it now, you'll ask, well, I had posted something about it in my other blog prior to the actual event but I am writing about it now, just so I have a remembrance, of sorts. About me being late, yet again, in updating, uhm, I say, what's new *grins*?
I turned on the PC, hoping to do some dropping and tweaking online while I'm waiting for the big event. And I waited, armed with a bunch of used film negatives *grins*, I know, it is not safe but I don't have the means or the money to buy anything else. According to PAGASA, visibility will start at 8:37am but I didn't noticed anything special up until 9 in the morning, photo above was taken at 9:12am. I looked and wondered, peeked and admired until my eyes hurt, as in, I was literally seeing red, and that's when I decided to stop - I don't intend to go blind *lol*.
At around 11 to 11:30am, all was back to normal, no sign of the eclipse can be seen anymore. And all I have as a remembrance of that time were a few photos, most of which blurry, but I am still thankful that I was able to witnessed something as cool as that in my lifetime (I had seen a total solar eclipse when I was in my elementary days but I was young then, I didn't care).
How about you? What's your solar eclipse story?
