My intent with this was to 'show' the passing of time. I didn't think it would be that big of a deal. I took 23 shots and one worked! I had to adjust my aperture to get that 1 second shot that showed the (nano?) second the shutter opened and the (nano?) second the shutter closed. Most of the shots had a three point blur. Basically it boiled down to having 1/2 second for both positions of the sweep (second) hand. Who would have thought 1/2 second would be so critical?

This is one thing you can't do with a Rolex.

These shots (of which you see one) were done with my 2x extension tube and my 105mm micro lens.

    That's an interesting experiment; well done.
