fixed motion

The aim of every artist is to arrest motion, which is life, by artificial means and hold it fixed so that a hundred years later, when a stranger looks at it, it moves again since it is life.

I have to be honest and admit that I'm really excited about the motion-blur shots I took this past weekend, like the one above with its tunnel effect and vine swinging down from the trees. If you'd like to see more, click here.

  2. Mark,

    I will have to say that you & Michael continue to amaze me with
    with your creativity and ingenuity with respect to thinking outside of the box with photography. I have been all over the Blue Ridge mountains and vallies and have been a little more than diapointed with the fall colors this year. You really have to look to find some nice shots. And yet...at our back door you have taken the ingredients that mother nature has provided to make a wonderful cake.
    Great JOB!

    and thanks for sharing..

  3. Great shot. I like the say that it even makes the viewer feel like she or he can feel the motion.
