Not too long ago, I posted my first picture of the Moon. I didn’t expect to take another one before a little while (maybe the next full Moon), but I coudn’t not pay homage to Neil Armstrong and how else to do it?
I’m not ashamed to say that I had tears in my eyes when I learned the news this morning. I didn’t have many real life heroes growing up. He was one of the few ones, and possibly the only one that mattered.
I’m even convinced that he had an indirect influence on a few paths that I took along the way between my childhood and now.
So Mr. Amstrong, this one is for you.
This is probably my favorite picture of him, taken by Buzz Aldrin, shortly after leaving the Moon.
