Pic(k) of the week 30: FIRST MANNED MOON LANDING 50 YEARS AGO

while watching a documentary about the first manned moon landing 50 years ago last week, I could only imagine how it must have felt watching the event live with over 500 million people back in July 1969! Yes, I missed it by a few years since I'm born in 1971.
  
Trying to give this great event a special twist half a century later, I shot some images through a large empty glass while watching television. Neil Armstrong, who was the first person to set foot on the moon on July 20 1969 (Houston time), passed away almost 7 years ago. 

Image details:
  • Fujifilm X-T3 with XF50 f2 lens
  • ISO 6400, 1/200s, f11
  • Raw development in Lightroom CC using Classic Chrome film simulation
A couple of Hasselblad cameras were used to shoot all of the Apollo 11 images. An interesting read about the specific cameras used can be found here

I would like to finish with the words of Neil Armstrong as he first set foot on the moon: "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" - Neil Armstrong
