The Appolo conquest of space by man

I just wanted to celebrate today the landing of Apollo 11, the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. I remember looking at the event fifty years ago on a black and white television with my grandparents in South of France.

I was so amused to shoot this picture in New York at Union Square with the Flat Iron Building as scenography.
