Eclipse Photos Are Up!

Edit: Here is a video of the moment of totality, taken from about 50 meters away from where I was watching 😀

And here is the sun, fully eclipsed (thanks JJ!)

Eclipsed!

I’ve uploaded some photos from my eclipse adventures! There aren’t many of the eclipse itself, I only had my iPhone on me at the time. I’ll pinch some from my friend who took a few DSLR shots and throw them in the album soon. Anyway, you should click here and take a look, if you like.

Here are a couple of tasters.

Stay up there, Aussie Dollar!

(aka stay down, US dollar!)

I’m going to NYC in a couple of weeks, which is very exciting. What is also exciting is that the USD is, um, not doing so great. Many folks have been talking about the Aussie dollar being particularly strong, but I’m not convinced. Here is a picture to illustrate why I’m not convinced:

Click for big!

I mean, the Aussie’s not doing too badly, but … yeah. There you have it.

Now stay down there! I want to buy things!

back home!

Back in Sydney tonight. It’s very hot and humid compared to Queenstown!

Here is a picture! I’ll upload all my photos tomorrow, most likely.
