[NASA description] Armstrong photographed Aldrin at the seismic experiment with the LM, the US flag and the TV camera in the background. 

The deployment of the Early Apollo Scientific Experiments Package (EASEP) is photographed by astronaut Neil A. Armstrong, Apollo 11 commander, during the crew extravehicular activity (EVA). Here, astronaut Edwin E. Aldrin Jr., lunar module pilot, is deploying the Passive Seismic Experiments Package (PSEP). Already deployed is the Laser Ranging Retro-Reflector (LR-3), which can be seen to the left and further in the background. In the center background is the Lunar Module. A flag of the United States is deployed near the LM. In the far left background is the deployed black and white lunar surface television camera. Armstrong took this picture with the 70mm lunar surface camera
