On this day…

… in 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.

Thanks to Boyd Harris for the link to the background on how this image was ‘prepared’ for publication.

It was taken with that famous Hasselblad that they left behind (to save weight). According to this source it was a special version of the 500 EL strapped to the astronaut’s chest (and without a viewfinder). The film was a variant of Ektachrome 160.
