This photo was taken in my back yard during the annular solar eclipse on Sunday evening. The tree leaves and our fingers acted as pseduo-pinhole cameras which projected the eclipse’s image on the wall resulting in these funky crescent-shaped shadows.
NASA has recently published highest resolution image of the Earth from space ever. The 64-megapixel image of Earth was captured by the VIIRS instrument on NASA’s most recently launched Earth-observing satellite, the Suomi NPP. You can read more about the Suomi NPP at its official website.

This photo is from the Documerica Project (1971-1977) put together by the Environmental Protection Agency. The EPA hired freelance photographers to capture images relating to environmental problems, EPA activities, and everyday life in the 1970s. The images taken for the project can now be found in the U.S. National Archives.
I caught the New Pornographers at the Fox Theater in Boulder the other night. It was a great show. I like this photo I took mostly because the drummer is rocking out on guitar and the keyboardist has her accordion on.
I love this photochrome print of the Denver Skyline circa 1898. Click the image for a larger version – it’s huge and shows some incredible detail. The image comes from the Library of Congress’s photochrome prints collection.
