SPEED OF MACHINE AND MAN CAUGHT BY CAMERA (Jan, 1924)
SPEED OF MACHINE AND MAN CAUGHT BY CAMERA
Thrills that electrified spectators at an automobile race and soccer game are reproduced by lucky “snaps” of quick-action cameras. The player in one picture has just made a goal by bunting the ball through the posts with his head, a feat seldom witnessed, but the photographer caught the play. And as the mechanician of a speeding car in a recent road race in Germany was looking out for tire trouble, the other picture was snapped as the car rounded a curve at terrific speed. Despite the rapidity of the camera *shutter, the quickness of movement of both subjects caused distortion.
