Happy Birthday, Eadweard

Muybridge sequence of galloping horseToday in 1830 Eadweard Muybridge was born. A social climber and kind of a jerk, he was also an extremely talented photographer. He was able to freeze the motion of a galloping horse - and change the way we looked at it forever.

Check out the Wikipedia entry where they have animations of this sequence and a galloping bison, too!
