It’s time to move back home from California so this week I’m running a collection of images I shot while visiting Space Center Houston and Johnson Space Center last weekend. This was my third visit down there as part of a great program they run for Cub Scouts, Girl Scouts and similar organisations. The kids get to spend the night, after the space center closes, doing a bunch of fun, aeronautically-related activities among the exhibits then we all “camp out” for the night in the Spaceship Gallery under one or other piece of space hardware (this time, Drew and I slept underneath an Apollo-Soyuz docking adapter, for example).
Aside from this being great fun for the kids, it also gives photographers like me amazing access to the exhibits when there is practically no-one around! I shot a few more images inside the Space Center but my main aim was to complete a set of Saturn V images I’ve been working on so we also spent an extra hour or so with the big rocket at JSC.
This shot was taken with a fisheye lens to create a rather abstract, ovoid from the cylinder of the rocket’s first stage.
