Happy Birthday, Eadweard Muybridge!

Yesterday is the birthday of the man who froze the gallop and thawed it out again.

From, of course, Wikipedia.

    Amazing, isn’t it, how that film changed the way we see the world? Paintings of horses before Muybridge now look impossible to us, yet back to the caves they were all the same.

    There is a (very) small but delightful exhibtion devoted to Muybridge at the local museum in Kingston Upon Thames (London, UK) for anyone near enough to visit. Well worth half an hopur of anyone’s time.
