Today’s assignment was to capture “motion” and also a “moment”.
Motion is a subject I used to spend a lot of time trying to capture effectively, when I attended Formula 1 races in Watkins Glen. These photos also capture a “moment” for me, as these races were an activity I enjoyed attending every year with my brother, who has since passed away.
I recently read an article about the difference between “photography” and “fine art photography”. The author made the point that “fine art photography” captures a more universal moment, that can be experienced by all viewers at some level, whereas “photography” more often captures a moment that is only experienced by the photographer, who was there to experience the setting and can re-live the event through memory when seeing the photograph.
For most viewers, these cars represent motion. To me, remembering my brother, they represent both motion and a moment.
