Day #567 Title: One Small Step For Neil
Location: At home
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 50mm EF f/1.8 + 12mm extension tube
Notes: A momentous thing happened 40 years ago today. I watched men land on the moon on the telly, whilst sitting on my Mum’s knee. Granted, I was only 201 days old at the time, so I didn’t take much of it in. But I’ve been captivated by science and space ever since.  I remember being awe-struck when I visited Kennedy Space Centre in Florida a few years ago, seeing the huge Saturn V rocket lying on its side. I would love to go back someday. Anyway, enough rambling… This is one of my very few pre-planned Photo A Day shots. I borrowed this US First Day Cover from my Dad, as I thought it would make a suitable tribute to the anniversary. It’s a great pity the 52 Themes 2009 group didn’t have History as the topic for this week, rather than last, as this would have fitted rather well.
