Lunar module ascending

A rare signed photograph taken during the first moon landing has sold for £5,200 at auction. It was given to the owner of a firm who arranged limousines for the astronauts during a 1969 London visit.

Shot by astronaut Michael Collins, who stayed on the spacecraft throughout the mission, it shows the lunar module being guided from the moon’s surface by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin and Neil Armstrong, with the Earth visible in the background.

“Fall in love with ordinary. Fall in love with the everyday. Fall in love with brown eyes and small towns and a hand full of dandelions. Discover. Discover the crevices. Read the books that aren’t so popular, by little known authors who have a lot to offer. Listen to music that makes you think. Choose art that is buried in the corner of galleries, or on the street. Teach yourself to love the small things. The special but unnoticed things. Teach yourself how the ordinary is not so ordinary after all.”
