While others were spending hours if not days planning for this, I had a few minutes only to dash down to an open space and put my good old Canon G15 – only camera available at work – to good use. I first tried shooting through borrowed eclipse glasses but got crappy results. So I turned the density filter on, set manual focus to infinity, underexposed a couple of stops, and waited for the sun to travel through the right cloud density.
Here we go, merely a partial eclipse since NYC was stranded 500 miles north of the totality line.
Did someone say Mordor?
