We are still working on the napkin portrait thing. I have to embrace a certain amount of failure on these, since I can't see very well to compose the shot and my collaborator is definitely not a perfectionist.
Coffee Shop napkin art #8. Today was spent watching the solar eclipse online, while being the support person for someone having skin cancer related day surgery. An odd juxtaposition of sun-themed events, but everything ended positively, on a happy note. Lotus flowers came to mind so I created some on on my napkin, having tea at the Prado Cafe. 🌖🌗🌘🌑🌝🌞
Be Sure to View the 2017 Eclipse Safely: (Even if you are Batman) (Unless your head is already on fire)
We are getting ready for the Great American (partial) Eclipse here in Brooklyn.
There's been a lot of discussion about how to view the eclipse in a safe manner. I am the proud owner of not one, but two, arc welding helmets, so we are pretty well outfitted. But the kids really wanted cool eclipse viewing glasses to be purchased expressly for the occasion. Not too much chance of that happening now at t minus one hour.
I am still thinking about a Fresh Direct box viewer though. Unfortunately, our latest delivery is not due until 3-5 pm today, so I will have to unpack our paper recycling pile.
The three superheroes Batman, Firestorm and Stargirl hail from the latest DC Cartoon Network show that my kids have been watching, "Justice League Action." Firestorm has a perpetual flame emanating from the top of his head so a eclipse box viewer will protect his vision, but not prevent all burning.
