RINGS OF FIRE THROUGH THE WINDOW COVERING

on May 21, 2012

What great pictures there are today of the solar eclipse that occurred yesterday!

Here in Albuquerque, the sky was clear, and since it was one of the most optimum places to view this happening, there were a lot of special events and viewing options. I prepared myself to witness the affects, but did not obtain any special eye wear or gadgets to make it possible to stare right at the  solar eclipse. 

Instead, being the good “window related” person I am, I found some interesting places to make those rings of fire associate themselves with windows and window coverings.

Yep, that’s little rings of fire created by the big ring of fire in the sky. And, seen through a vertical blind in the guest room. How appropriate for me. 

As a bonus, the reflection of this event made something even better on the wall directly across from the window.

This was almost as much fun as the total solar eclipse I witnessed on February 26, 1979 in Oregon. We lived on a dairy at the time, and mid-morning the skies became totally dark and the cows started to come home.

For Your Windows sells vertical blinds, but darn, we don’t have any with little rings of fire.
