40 years!

I remember watching it on our black and white console TV.

I remember seeing Cronkite wipe his eye.

I was moved then, and still am. Seeing the skinny crescent Moon this morning made me smile, but then it always does.

Happy Anniversary!

btw-  My Nikon 5000 came back all spiffy from the serivce center Friday.  They replaced the CCD and gave the camera and lens a good cleaning and adjusting.  The image above was made with it, so I’m back in business making afocal images with it.  Thanks Nikon!

Clouds were passing through while I made the image so it’s a little mushy and I converted it to black and white just because it’s appropriate for the day.
