Here’s one of my favorites. I shot this back on November 23, 2007 with my old Panasonic DMC-FX50 point and shoot. I still love that little camera. The little Leica lens was wonderful.

A few thoughts come to mind:
- These people have perhaps the greatest job of all-time, and maybe (hopefully) one day people will recognize their work as one of the most important jobs, too.
- I didn’t know JJ Abrams was directing this movie.
- Space has the best lighting.
- We’re tiny. We’re nothing. Yet, we’re everything.
