Rocket Man (I Think It's Going To Be a Long, Long Time)

    Newer Older

    On the Astro Orbitor with my 3 year old, grabbed a shot of the rockets in front trying to some sense of movement with motion blur.

    bookish in north park, Al_HikesAZ, and 44 other people added this photo to their favorites.

      I had no idea bout the title when I fav'd your photo.

      Uncannily, I closed down flickr, walked out to where the TV is, only to discover that this show/movie (with "Rocket man" as the openeing theme) was just starting...

      Weird.

      I used this for my free ebook "A Left Argument for Space". I just thought it was witty. You can get that ebook for free I think for the next three hours or I can lend it to you.http://www.amazon.com/Left-Argument-Space-ebook/dp/B00G1BM0FU/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1382660195&sr=1-1&keywords=Philip+Shropshire

      Hi, I see this incredible photo is free for commercial use. I am thinking to use it in a book about human future, putting a line attributing it to you. Please let me know asap if you don't want it there. Thanks!
