    blinds
  • Confuse or overawe someone with something difficult to understand
  • Cause (someone) to be unable to see, permanently or temporarily
  • Deprive (someone) of understanding, judgment, or perception
  • The blinds are forced bets posted by players to the left of the dealer button in flop-style poker games. The number of blinds is usually two, but can be one or three.
  • A window blind is a type of window covering which is made with slats of fabric, wood, plastic or metal that adjust by rotating from an open position to a closed position by allowing slats to overlap. A roller blind does not have slats but comprises a single piece of material.
  • window coverings, especially vertical blinds, wood blinds, roller blinds, pleated blinds

  • relating to or derived from the sun or utilizing the energies of the sun; "solar eclipse"; "solar energy"
  • Solar is an American fictional comic book character. Originally known as Doctor Solar, Man of the Atom, he first appeared in a comic book published by Gold Key Comics in the 1960s.
  • Of, relating to, or determined by the sun

Description:
A general method for realistic performance evaluation of solar control properties of facades for facades with sun-shading or other solar control systems has been developed. It is particularly designed to be used for venetian blinds. It can be used used 'stand-alone' or within building simulation programs. The new method has proven to be of great practical value to planning teams of huge office buildings in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. The method is presented in detail in this paper. It can be used either 'stand-alone' (without building simulation) for comparisons of different facade variants or within building simulation programs. Some parts of the proposed methodology could be used in standards (e.g. EN13363) or to improve the accuracy of building simulation programs which are currently on the market. Practical experience with the new methodology led to insights which are the basis for the design of two new products. These new products are compared with state of the art products in [T.E. Kuhn, Solar control: comparsion of two new systems with the state of the art on the basis of a new general evaluation method for facades with venetian blinds or other solar control systems, Energy and Buildings, in press] on the basis of the new methodology.

Blind panning on the sun in the fog. Normally at 105mm the sun would be a tiny dot. 300-400mm on the long end is better to create huge celestial bodies, but don't have that kind of range with the kit lens. Here is the process: Zoom in on the moon, er, sun, and take as many shots as needed to understand where your exposure time needs to be to keep from "blowing it out" (losing the detail). More on this here: flickr.com/photos/jahdakinebrah/291092653/in/set-72157594... Then do the same for the second exposure and make sure you have some kind of reference so you can know where to aim. Finally, point back at the moon,er, sun, and lock the shutter release. After the determined exposure time, cover the lens and then re-aim to the second spot. zoom out and uncover the lens for the determined second exposure. Release the lock. Pray. Repeat as needed ;-)

Not the best photo ... you can't even see the new solar blinds (fully rolled up here), but the cornice is beautiful, custom made for the space in a gorgeous fabric that looks very much like distressed leather, and that ties in perfectly with the distressed leather framing the mirror.
