fly me to the moon

Toronto. An event occurred during the summer a half century ago that sparked the imagination of everyone! Man first walked on the moon. I was living in Montreal at the time. My first child was born that summer. And I won two of three photographic categories.

This post’s title is from a 1954 song ¬†popularized a decade later by old blue eyes himself. All this came to mind when I saw two things: Tuesday’s Globe in its Astronomy Column on page A7; and Galerie GADCOLLECTION’s Apollo XI exhibition ‘To the Moon and Beyond‘ which runs from May 23 to July 31 ¬†of this year (2019). If you haven’t seen the photographs from this epic event, visit the Galerie and pick up a few for your collection of historic prints.
