Split Seconds?

The notion of split seconds’ came about as Abe mulled over pub­lish­ing a book fea­tur­ing some of the images he had taken dur­ing a vis­it to Cuba. He mused that his camera’s shut­ter speed had aver­aged around 1125 of a second for the hun­dred or so images. So the dur­a­tion of all the action recor­ded in all 110 pic­tures added togeth­er was less than a second. Thus, a series of such books would indeed Split Seconds’.
