A really nice cover by Louis Glanzman, his 30th for Time, showing Neil Armstrong's first steps on the moon . . .
' The Moon'—a catchy catch-phrase . . .
The Moon Men were photogenic and brave. The neat thing is that they weren't cocky . . .
It was a wonderful event for cameras, but it was cool that Robert McCall, and other artists for other media, were on hand . . .
In hindsight we can laugh that there was concern about bringing back 'moon bugs', but if they hadn't done the quarantine and there really were cosmic pathogens and we all died horrible blood-spitting deaths . . . wouldn't we have been pissed?
A cool Time diagram, adapted from Life . . .

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
