Photo Quote Number 11

Today’s Quote(s) on Photography:

The first photos taken of the Moon by the US Surveyor 1 have been very disappointing. They show the Moon to be completely lacking in first-class restaurants, tourist attractions and bathroom facilities.” – Art Buchwald – “The New York Herald Tribune,” June, 1966

“And it doesn’t even look anything like like Swiss cheese either.” – me.
