Definitely does not define 1969 (Moon Landing, Woodstock, etc.), but I thought this image could be used to represent pollution and what future generations will inherit from us.

Plus, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to use a really cool prop. :)

...could have entered this for the "famous last words" challenge too! Lol... Nice idea and works well in B + W. Maybe a tighter crop at the top?

I really like the subject. Nice choice considering everyone else will be doing moon landings.

Abandoned factory as backdrop + play on perspective would have made this a winner. 6

That's my vintage ... I did not know that, thinking of first man on the moon, the concorde and the 747! Good history lessons!
