Shooting for the Moon

(My first attempt at shooting the moon - the night before the Blue Moon)

Seems like we've been talking about the moon a lot this last week or so.  Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, was laid to rest on the day of last week's Blue Moon and, for me, this has resulted in more looking at the moon, more thinking about the 1960's, and even some winking (per Mr. Armstrong's request).  I even made a serious attempt at taking a photo of the moon.  The moon, it seems, is a very interesting subject.


Mystery creates wonder and wonder is
the basis of man's desire to understand.

  5. Thats a beauty with the leaves framing it. I was once asked what the most significant event of my life time was. While the company I was with brought up Kennedy's assassination I surprised them with "mans first step" In truth, Neil Armstrong was my neighbors uncle. And her mother was a Dupuy. Family name of the man who built the home that Phil Spector killed his wife in. How's that for pedigree?

    1. Thanks so much! What a great story! So was Armstrong her father's brother? ...and the Phil Spector thing - pedigreed for sure! You grew up in interesting company.
