A shoot that finally came together a couple of months ago... We lugged out our poofy dresses and all my chemistry glassware, plus some food coloring, lamp shades... oh yeah, and the sleeping kid, and set up this awesome little colorful shoot just before the sun went down on the volcanic rocks outside of town. I love my weird friends!
This summer was full of discoveries and experiments. Like color exploration with water and food coloring. And sharpie boots...
My efforts to document the total eclipse event were not too intense. I felt less inclined as we were not in the path of totality, so the extent of my viewing was via the pinhole eclipse projections onto the sidewalk through the leaves of trees around my house. I also put out some special beads - some labradorite spheres (aka rainbow moonstone) and some hessonite garnet rondelles, varying in shade from almost clear to a deep amber - to bask in the light, or lack thereof, of the eclipse. Sort of an infusion of the power of the celestial bodies.
