Movement (free hand)

Blur South Africans experience every now and than a load shedding. No street lights but only the lights of movement in the street. The first picture (exposure time 1/4 sec) shows a car that did not stop for a STOP-sign; probably the driver did not see it with the obvious excuse of load shedding. The second (1 sec exposure) shows two cars just before a frontal crash (no injuries BTW); the fast moving one also did not see (seemingly) a STOP-sign. The third one (4 seconds with camera holding against a wall) shows the rear light of a taxibus hobbling through a dip in a gravel road.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

The word ‘angular’ seems to associate people/bloggers.photographer/etc. with some kind of mathematics in which angles (‘disambiguation’) plays an important role in the picture.

But there is also a JAVA-script named ‘Angular’; there is angular displacement, angular velocity, angular frequency, angular momentum, angular acceleration, etc.

These ‘angulars’ all have ‘movement’ and ‘dynamics’ in common (BTW; there are also quite a few ‘angulars’ in anatomy but, laid-back as I am today, I leave these to the anatomists)

Here is my interpretation of this week’s Photo Challenge:

Have a good look … (it’s a bit of a refined optical thing). There are no angles, or are there?


A strange sensation

These are 4 blended pictures in which I tried to capture the movement of the globe. It works nice with the moon but look what the star/planet (most probably Venus) is doing…
