venus

as you may know venus got in the way of the sun today for a bit.
i tried taking a photo of the sun directly (by sort of hiding behind this polling sign), but it obviously didn’t work (not that expected it would). don’t worry. i took all the usual precautions such as closing my eyes as i took the photo.
luckily across the road were some bearded old men who were constructing a ‘thing’ which displayed it on a piece of paper. they were very pleased with the results and asked me to stay for a few seconds whilst they adjusted it.
i gave them 10 seconds, took my photo then zoomed off to my meeting round the corner.
