(lunar orbit four) Back Side Of The Moon

Each time I've walked out of the keynote hall in the San Jose conference centre the last few days, I've found the light on the cracked and pitted concrete floor fascinating. A low light highlighted the pits and scrapes of decades of exhibition set-ups and tear-downs, turning them into something fantastical and beautiful.

The stark halogen glow over the concrete reminded me of the first Ranger images of the moon, our initial 100 mile glimpse of our nearest celestial neigbour...

So this morning I pulled out my iPhone...

That's my thought. Next to apply some processing to the image.

I like the way your brain works. I see the parallels.

Isn't that a faint glint of Cavourite in the lower crater?
