"Once the reasons why the motion distortion occurs are understood, they allow scanner photographs to be looked at in a different way - as a sort of 'visual score' recording a sequence of time, rather than as a single instant that has been frozen. By reading the scanner photograph from left to right, like a page of text or a musical score, we can get an understanding of the motion of objects in the scene." -M. Golembewski

This scan was about 45 seconds long, with me slowly shifting my head in mid-scan.

Also note that while the picture looks black and white, you can see faint red, blue, and green stripes in the patterns of the back wall. Another artifact of the scanner.

I have to be honest, yours are pictures that are so full of artistry and skill that I really don't feel comfortable commenting on them. I look at them and enjoy them, but I don't want to diminish them by adding a meager comment. Just saying.

Well done, Brandon.

I slacked off this week and missed this the other day. Your theme is without a doubt the most innovative, and the pictures it's producing are incredible.
