There was a post awhile back, which I cannot find, announcing that NASA had just posted all the Apollo Mission photos to Flickr.

Being a space geek, I looked at every one and was completely blown away by these photos which are also available for download in original resolution. Being a photo geek, I picked a few of my favorites, downloaded them, and edited them to suit me.

These were all shot with film cameras ... digital photography hadn't been invented yet, or at least not commercialized, yet. Some were shot in B&W, many in color. (Although one of the astronauts commented that everything on the moon is gray. The only color there is was the color they brought with them.) The negatives were scanned to produce images of about 4,000 x 4000 pixels. Many were shot through space craft window glass. There's a lot of noise in some of them. But those artifacts aside, the Flikr photos are spectacular.

Fascinating photos!

It's amazing that people were cavorting around in space before digital photography got off the ground.

REALLY nice work, confusing one. For the record, here's the link to the original thread.

I wonder if it would be worth doing a challenge asking entrants to re-master a chosen source image? Hrmmmm....

I wonder how did they operated a camera when outside wearing such massive gloves

In the first photo, you can see a camera strapped to his chest. Sort of a 1969 version of a GoPro ... I think.

I REALLY like the idea of a "remastering" challenge!
