What Nikki and I found was a feeling of sharing freely ... glasses and viewing boxes with everyone. She said this was the best Manhattan energy she has experienced in a long time. I felt the same about Brooklyn. People across the nation experienced the same camaraderie and fun. With everything going on in the Trump administration, this energy was greatly needed to bond people together and share their stories about the experience. Perhaps it was an indicator of whatever unites us at the end, comes from above.
You cover the camera lens with the sunglasses then take the pic.
The eclipse and the bridge - The sun was over the Brooklyn arch of the Verrazano Bridge from our perspective when the eclipse began. It gradually moved west over the water as it completed its journey. It was an interesting experience, but my neighbors and I expected it to get darker but it just seemed bit overcast. I met an 8 year old boy and his mom and took several pics of them so he can share them when he goes back to school. They took these two pics of me as we walked to the park where we met other people.
