Moments in Time in the Movie of Life

What does a photograph capture ? Time? A vision ? Is a photograph simply just a single frame in the "Movie

of Life" ? Is a photograph a physical thing?  Is it a solid or liquid ? Is it visual poetry? Does it exist by itself in the physical world?

Let's explore this using the photographs themselves.

Did I just capture this moment, or were these birds in some kind of order ? Were they (as a group of organized birds) trying to send us humans a message (like "Get out of our way buddy, we're coming through" ) ?

Or did I just manipulate the physical world by capturing this "moment in time" ? Good question.

What have I captured here? The exact moment of the sunset or the "color" or atmosphere of a sunset ?

Did I place that woman in front of the "Marilyn"  she's looking at ? Or am I using a tricky form of juxtaposition ?

Have I "captured time in a bottle" like the Jim Croce song says ? Or have I captured an image forever fixed in a puddle?

 

Finally , where is this train going in this photo ? Is it coming or going ?  Or is it at its final stop for the day?
