If I had taken this image, I wouldn’t really be proud of it. I think the horizon needs to be a little higher in the frame, and it’s incredibly noisy. But I didn’t take it.
NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover did. See that little point of light up in the sky, a little off to the left? That is Earth, below it, very faintly, is our moon. When I see photos like this, I feel amazed. I have to sit here and stare, in wondered amazement. For thousands of years we’ve wondered, we’ve hypothesized, we’ve argued over, and we’ve pushed towards the day that we could venture out to the other planets and eventually the stars.
That day is now. That time is here. This is the future. We are living in something that will be remembered for the rest of human existence.
So don’t skip over this because it is noisy and not composed very well, and stare at it.
Hey people, since I got a new camera, I want to give away my Fujifilm X100 to someone who can’t afford a good camera, but enjoys taking pictures as much as I do. You can check out pictures I’ve taken with it here. I loved the camera for its manual dials, great colors and compact retro design. It’s really hard for me to part with this camera, but I think it should be used and loved again.
I will look through all reblogs, randomly choose a winner and send it to wherever you live.
The camera with two batteries, lens hood and leather strap is worth ~ 400$.
