Picture of the Day
April 8, 2024

spacer this isn't what the
eclipse looked like
            but     i like
 how it looks   like an eye

my camera could've handled it better
  but i didn't want to handle my camera

instead left it unattended to record slowmo,
240 frames per second, 1/8th the speed of life,
but it overexposed, no match for the human eye

i tried to be in the moment but felt it less than last time,
no waves of energy, but it was more beautiful than anything,
corona scintillating like diamonds, sun just a whisper of light...
