All Four

Yes, All 4 feet
  • Eadweard Muybridge
  • 1878

And that’s how photography and the moving picture began. This shot doesn’t have the same importance, but just to show how easy it is today.

Muybridge and a bunch of guys wuz arguin’ ’bout wetter the horsies legs wuz all in the air at da same time. So he strung this string, no a whole bunch of strings, and each one would trip the shutter of the camera it was attached to. Think of the work to set that up with all those cameras.

They could have used a bluetooth beam to do the same thing.

Oh, and these were “pacers” at Yonkers Raceway.
