Shades of Rockets

During the summer of 2009, the whole family visited the US Space & Rocket Center. The kids were in the "G-Force" ride, and my wife and I were waiting for their ride to finish. All at once, she told me, "Put your head back the way you just had it."

Now, the "G-Force" is due west of the Saturn I in the Rocket Park, and it turns out that I was accidentally standing in just the right spot for the Saturn I to reflect off of my sunglases. She said that it would make a really cool picture, so I ran back to the car, got my camera, and she snapped away.

I thought it'd make a great picture for the "about me" page.
