Is it time again?

Hi, I'm Geoff (he/him). I've been here for a little more than a year, I think.

I write for a living, at a certain large charity in Toronto. I'm in accessible publishing, but I really only have a toe in .

I take pictures. Some of the pictures are of cats. flickr.com/photos/giltay/album

some free software is "libre as in lucha libre":

it helps to make up a secret identity, because you're going to have to do battle with a bunch of masked chuds with opinions before you even get to wrestle the software itself

I'm not going to look at my actual moon closeups until tomorrow but here's a timelapse of the sky going from super bright to super dark

It's short but 2k 360 version: youtu.be/Oz5zQChsXm8

The evening was hectic, and I almost forgot about the #LunarEclipse. I had literally just put my son to bed when I remembered, "The #eclipse!" We went out to see if the sky was clear. Clouds were rushing across the sky, but for the most part, it was clear, and we had a perfect view of the #moon looking like a dark brown chunk of rock in the sky. (Then I spent 10 minutes fighting with camera settings while he went back to bed.) #Photography #BloodMoon

Day 20. The Too Many Adjectives Moon, a.k.a. that time I stood on the balcony for a while and just barely managed not to yell "WHY AREN'T YOU FOOLS LOOKING AT THE MOON?" at passersby. flickr.com/photos/eldan/albums

Remembered I could control my camera with my phone…. Last one of these bastards. It’s too damn cold

ISO 800, f/4, 0.6”. Cropped slightly to center it in the frame

It is remarkably clear, which is nice, but remarkably clear usually means remarkably cold. It's below -20, which is cold enough.

Here are two shots of the , one about an hour before totality, one just after totality. It's too cold to take any more. Last time I photographed a in winter, I wrecked my camera.

First: 1/500 s, f/8, ISO 400
Second: ~1 s (bulb), f/5.6 (wide open!), ISO 400

Cookie is getting chubby, so she's on a diet. I have to look into these eyes and tell her no, you can't have any more chunks in jelly. #TheStruggleIsReal
