Analemma 2010

What goes around, comes around.

A picture of the sun taken at exactly 9 a.m. 36 times throughout the last year (the foreground was superimposed; the neighborhood in Hungary from where the pix were taken). The bottom-most image was taken on the December 21 solstice, the top-most taken on the June 21 solstice. The middle bits: on the equinoxes, March 20 and September 23.

Have a very merry New Year's Eve. Drive safe. Make exactly as much of a fool of yourself as you choose. See you in the New Year.

Thamks to APOD for the pic.

A shadow of a person with a camera on a house on an anonymous anywhere street...and the rhythm of the solar system captured. Quotidian and profound.

That's a wonderful (series of) pic(s)!

Happy New Year back atcha, eveyone.

And, John, thanks for stopping by. I like the idea of profound rhythms occurring over everyday, anonymous streets.
