Action in the moment

To appreciate photography is to worship its ability to capture a single moment in time; literally a freeze frame.  A jumper rider warming up before his round–in the up position of his post….The horse at liberty levitating off the ground–before he can bend his back in a thrilling buck…a horse with his head still and the blur of the head shake in the next moment.  The ballet between hoof and ground…..the action….in the moment.
