Solar Eclipse

Getting there, originally uploaded by jakerome.

Got lucky in Manhattan Beach, with the low coastal clouds providing the perfect natural filter. Snapped 100 shots, fun to see the chunk taken out get bigger & bigger. Might as well check out the rest of the set.

Funny thing is, during the last major eclipse in the US in 1994, I was about the same distance from the full shadow in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and I also got a brief glimpse of the eclipse when clouds passed overhead right at maximum (about 98% coverage that time).

A Celebration of Art: The Book

May 14th, 2012, 12:01am by Jake

The photos have been taken. The paintings & sketches have been selected. Well, the website is up. The site has been secured. A charity has been chosen. The press release has been sent. And finally, after months of editing, 2 full proofs, contributions from a dozen friends & family, design help from friends worldwide and countless hours of proofreading, the book is complete & ready to order!

But don’t order yet. If you’re planning to buy either the 7″ softcover or 12″ hardcover & you live in the United States, send your order to me & I’ll include your book in our launch order, which will save us some money and allow us to make a larger donation. But I won’t be bothered too much if you order it direct from Blurb. I still have to proof the 7″ book before posting it for sale. In the meantime, you’re all invited to order the eBook edition, which is only $10 and will no doubt look awesome on a new iPad.
