I met the guy who took that photo. . . Smile

All of humanity with the exception of 3 people, in one photo. Amazing.

That photo, more than any other, was the defining image of Apollo up to Neil and Buzz's landing.



No arsenal is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women.

A fella here posted a picture of a scoped SCAR 17s , it was on a glass patio table .

it was stunning.

and for about four months , you could google it and it would pop up.

but sadly, no more.

if it shows up again , I will figure out a way to save it


did anyone else happen to save it?

Thanks, Jake. Glad you appreciate it.

I thought it was a stunning image when I first saw it.

Here's a similar one.

Goosebumps, goosebumps all over, at the mere thought of him and them.

Dude that my picture. Enjoy and continue to use it as your background.

I was in the Outer Bank a few weeks ago and was thinking about this shot. I would like to this again but it takes a lot of setup and time. Plus all the planning doesn't matter if mother nature doesn't cooperate.


My favorite Outer Banks photo is of the Wright Memorial in Kitty Hawk at night with a full moon in the background. The photo was taken while Armstrong and Aldrin were walking on the moon.
