Well, I am still waiting on my camera...
That's ok though, I have tons of homework and reading to catch up on. Here in Reno NV, our town is just covered in smoke from all the wildfires in the outlining areas. Can't really go outside and the sun is this really neat color of orange or pink. Its interesting being able to see the sun through the smoke as a huge floating orb. Hardly get to look at the sun straight on (polarized sunglasses of course).
In relation to orbs here are some photos I did early this spring (capturing the mysterious orb):
I do have a few more photos in the light painting style uploaded on to my Flickr account. You can click the widget to the right to see the rest of the photostream.
