    I think this could be considered an indecisive moment... http://stage.itp.nyu.edu/history/tim...es/marey12.jpg



    I like Thomas' take on it... I think another photographer that captured truly decisive moments was W. Eugene Smith.

    Ha! I've always thought Muybridge was interesting.

    Aren't those questions you ask yourself when you see a frame like this?

    Nope. But that's just me. I've made my peace (for the most part) with the fact my preferences are often at odds with those of others, and the artistic community at large. I respond differently, I guess.

    We can't all be the same. Imagine how boring these discussions would be.

    Actually this is the work of Etienne Jules-Marey, though he was a contemporary of Muybridge and there is some history between them. Jules-Marey was a real scientist though, who used his camera for legitimate investigation, whereas Muybridge was more of a photographer turned scientist, or at least that's the general idea given in Marta Braun's Picturing Time: The Work of Etienne-Jules Marey. He pioneered a lot of these early sequential methods, and some would say he invented cinema, but that's a different tale altogether.

    Not unlike Edgerton's later investigations with the Xenon flash tube.

    Thanks for clarifying... Shows how educated I am on the matter.

    Very true. Each thread would have an initial post, followed by everyone saying "I agree". FUN
