My dad and I experienced the Great American Solar Eclipse from our Family Farm in Pennsylvania.
We even captured a few phases of the actual eclipse, with my Dad holding the protective glass over the lens while I photographed it.
Dad used an old machine part, which has a hole in the center, to project the eclipse onto a number of things for me… including flowers and rocks, oh and a grasshopper. He also used an old saw, which was kinda neat.
A bee like insect landed on me and I captured the eclipse reflections in its wings and body as well.
We observed Nature and wildlife on the farm and around the fields, including some odd behavior in birds… such as a hawk and small birds flocking together…not hunting, not pestering, not catching insects. Pretty cool.
A really fun way to both observe and photograph were the projectors which spelled out “Eclipse” and “Pics By Lis.” Either Dad or I held them as I photographed them on various plants, rocks, even an old plow.
To add to the special memories and great fun, Tom Atkins of WJET in Erie showed a few images on both the ABC & FOX news on the 22nd. :0)
