Via the Smithsonian American Art Museum, here’s a pair of outstanding vintage stop-motion photographs by Harold E. Edgerton. They both capture the moment when a player kicks a football on a tee, and I love the effect of the feet pushing in the football.
Here’s a black and white from 1934:
And a nifty color one from 1938. I love the shiny gold pants almost as much as the shot of the football.
