I have a sweet tooth…always have and fear I always will. Do you?

While in the Mt. Shasta area in May of this year doing some Night Sky imaging with my good friend T she and I stopped in McCloud for lunch and a walk-about.  Lunch was delicious and I wish now that I had the will power to slow down to make an image of my sandwich. I was too hungry and now regret that I didn’t make an image of it or write down the ingredients in it because it was THE BEST VEGGIE sandwich I have ever had! However,  being a door addict… I can admit that with a straight face, and no shame. I did take a photo of the McCloud Candy Shoppe doors!  Thank you T for going along with the walk-about!  Pssst!  It won’t be long before I convert her to the beauty and wonder of doors.  She’s been picking up rocks that she thinks I’ll love, and pointing them out to me if thinks I missed one for years.  You guys know how much I love rocks right? She got it straight-away.  Can you say Kindred Spirit? Yeah, you know what I’m talkinbout! Don’tcha love friends like this? There are never enough of them are there? I can count them on one hand!  I digress. Here’s the McCloud Candy Shoppe doors. Look at that wood! The red paneling is frosting on the cake right? Right! I love the pine swag and old time tins on top too.  Have I ever shared that I collect and save tins, glass jars, bottles, and kitchen stuff? No. Ah, well I do, and there’s lots I wish I had!

McCloud Candy Shoppe

There are Bonus doors too! The doors that lead to the shoppe!

Here’s something else you might not know about me. I love chocolate, and am super self conscience and shy about taking photos inside stores, of people, and on the street! There was lots of candy, and oodles of photo ops inside the store, but I was too chicken  self conscience to take any photos inside the store. 😦  Put me in the country, jungle, or under a night sky and I can shoot all day, and night, but in a store, studio, or a city street.  Not so much.

So you’ll have venture in for your Rocky Road, Yum Yum, Chicken Stick, or Orange Creme ahead of me this time.

The Great Eclipse of August 2017 was 75% eclipsed where I live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

I wasn’t able to travel to see Totality so photographed the Eclipse from my backyard.

I made an image every 10 minutes from just before it began until the very end. The images are unguided. In between images I moved my lens away from the sun so the sun wouldn’t be shining down my lens and possibly damage my sensor even though I had a genuine Solar Filter mounted to the lens.

This composite showing some of the most pronounced phases of the phenomenon is comprised of 7 frames. The left side is first contact, the middle peak eclipsed, and the last image on the right last contact or pretty close to it.

I’ve got my mind set on seeing the Solar Eclipse in 2024 in Totality, and will be making plans to view that early as that probably will be the last chance I get to see it live.
