You guys don’t make it easy on a fellow. Every image shows something that is frozen in the time-frame that it was captured, I am not sure if I can verbalize something intelligent about each image posted, although they are all great, but what ‘makes it for me,’ for some odd reason, are things that are air-borne. Those images have that frozen-in-time flavor that conveys the message, in a different way. With that, and after much perspiration:

First: Rpolitsr, Warp Speed
Second: Marie, jumping with joy
Third: Spoco57, It's in the air

Congratulations to Rafael, Marie and Spoco - and to Sibil for a thought provoking subject!

As entries started to come in I realized that of course ANY photograph records a moment frozen in time, and if the subject is airborne then even better as they are frozen in space as well, so my search for fossils and preserved specimens like my crab was really not necessary!

My search for a good background to show on my monitor did lead me to one most interesting site, however - Isaac Asimov's predictions in 1964 for the year 2014. He was a brilliant guy but no better than anyone else when predicting the future - take a look:

Congratulations marie and Spoco for sharing the top places (first and second was my guess).
I was really surprised with the first place, Thank you very much, Sibil.

As Sibil and teekay explained, the airborne subjects better transmit the idea of 'frozen', and both marie and Spoco provided very good examples that I enjoyed. The idea of a frozen lovely moment of Maureen was great too.

Long time ago I learned that the Pro1 is not good for freezing fast action, so the idea of teekay with the fossil made me look in my archives for an ancient burial surrounded by ceramic vessels. The archive photo was shot with my XT and had no time to go there with the Pro1 so I returned to the subject of frozen action, but instead of a slightly blurred image (with some Star Trek effects in mind :) ), I chose the photo with the totally blurred bicycle. I shot it at 1/20 sec. Unfortunately, without IS or a tripod, the other kids and the background were blurred too.

I will post a new challenge as soon as possible.

I was looking at that lineup of LBJ, Streisand and the Beatles and feeling fortunate time wasn't frozen in the 60's, although at least Isaac Asimov seemed to be on point with his prediction of small hand-held computers. Not too sure about the rest of his predictions, Teekay, but the kind of cellphone vision he had, and the handheld computer were pretty spot-on. Nice article, btw.

I fell in love with Marie's levitating sweetheart. Great capture, Marie! Rafael's streaking bicycle really freezes the moment, too. Thanks, Rafael.

Great to have you with us, Maureen! Beautiful photo. Beautiful.

And thanks to Sibil for doing the hard work of coming up with a theme, and judging. Great job! Thank you!

Steve

Congratulations, all who tackled this difficult theme and did it so well! I stayed out this time, as winning is always a possibility and I won't be in town for judging duties next week.
