The Solway Firth Spaceman

I always enjoyed the story of the Solway Spaceman, especially when the photograph was taken so close to where I grew up. Of course if an image like this was made today there wouldn't even be a story thanks to the joys of Photo Shop. Nowadays its all images of the Virgin Mary in butter, weight lifting toddlers, and paintings in galleries by three year olds. Shame really.

I did make a photograph in the very same spot as the Solway Firth Spaceman a few years ago (see pic), but sadly no men in space suits, or alien beasties.

You do realise that you had a hairstyle very similar to the girl in that photo once.
