I don't recall reading anywhere in Hey Harriet's Shadow Shot Sunday rules that it has to be a new image, so here is my blast from the past. Why don't you hop over to Hey Harriet to see some more up-to-date shadow shots?
I had been living in Canada for a year and had just finished working at a boys' summer camp and was about to return to Australia to get married. It was September 1969 (!!) and before I flew home my brother, who was teaching in Toronto, suggested we take a whirlwind trip around New York and Pennsylvania.
The first lunar landing occurred on 20 July that year, while I was working at the summer camp. A television was brought in specially for the occasion so that we could all witness the event. Just as Neil Armstrong took one small step for man, a little boy in the assembly hall spied a large moth and there was a rush of kids to see it fluttering against the window. Priceless history.
Anyway, there on exhibition in New York was Neil Armstrong's space suit, which we found much more exciting than a moth.
I had lost my colour slides of that trip to New York for many years and had long suspected that they had thrown it out in some over-enthusiastic clean-up. But last year, nearly forty years after they were taken, they miraculously turned up in a dusty old box. I converted the slides on my nifty colour printer/scanner and will put up some of the other shots during the coming week, as they are a priceless time capsule of a city I have loved and re-visited over the years.
