We were in the path of totality!
Which, if you know anything, was an excuse to not work for most of the day and have wine before 3pm. Because of course it was. For me, it was also an excuse to very rudimentarily (?) play with my new camera, which I got to do for all of 2 minutes because I was paranoid that if I shot anything but the actual dark part my lens would be burned like my eyes.
This was because the internet told me that could happen and I didn't get out to get a solar filter because I will literally never need one again.
