DARKNESS ON THE DARKEST NIGHT
Seriously? The longest night of the year and the heavens conspire to turn out the nightlight right in the middle of it? A hell of a show, we must say, but perhaps a little too much salt-in-the-wound humor for those of us who prefer our nights short and summery. But for the Tillmans, last night—a total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice—was like a high holiday. They've got a pagan streak, or at least a thumb-in-the-eye-of-organized-religion streak, and they whooped it up at the shop compound in celebration. Alas, when the time came to snap a few photos of the coppery totality they were less than focused and most of their pictures were downright blurry. This fine shot by Darnell works well enough though.
