Double Eclipse! (a preview)

WOW!!  I haven’t made a post  since April.  I am long overdue, but it has been for good reason.  I have had 15 workshops since April, one of them being to Arizona where we photographed many iconic locations including the Great “Ring of Fire” Annular Solar Eclipse over Horseshoe Bend in northern Arizona. I have also photographed the partial eclipse of the “strawberry” moon in early June, follow by the “transit of Venus” crossing the surface of the Sun, the following night. Three eclipses in just as many weeks, So lucky to have been apart of them all. The eclipse BlogEntry is coming next week! This is just a  little teaser of what is to come! Enjoy! We all arrived at 12 noon (5 1/2 hours before the eclipse began, just to “claim” our spot) and I’m glad we did.

Philadelphia – July 4th, 2010. Where it all Began.

Street Performers young and old joined in on the festivities.

With the temperature almost reaching 100 degrees, this seemed to be the most reliable method of cooling down.

Insane amounts of people crowded the streets as The Roots took the stage around 8pm. I don’t know how many people were there, but it felt like one million to me.

The Goo Goo Dolls took the stage and played song after song after song.  It was an extremely positive atmosphere on a very muggy night.

What would be better than ending the night with a fireworks display at the Philadelphia Art Museum. Fireworks light up the Philadelphia skyline for over 16 minutes while onlookers snapped photos and captured videos on their cameras and phones. Have a safe summer!
