I’ll knew the eclipse was coming but I still forgot a camera. It was cloudy too, maybe that was a subconscious gremlin in my pocket filling routine for the day ahead.
Whatever, when it broke through the gloom I was having a fly cuppa with Linda and was many miles away from base and any camera.
I didn’t want to miss it so I snapped away on my phone and got several shots over bright blurry disappointment. I sat in the motor ready to leave and saw my clip-on Polaroid shades. Oh, says I.
Scratched sunglasses over phone camera lens. Day saved.
