Action-Filled Photographs

With a camera (and meticulous planning), photographer Ferrell McCollough captures moments that pass too quickly for the eye and the mind to absorb. For the photograph "Seven Glasses," which features seven wine glasses shattering on a table, McCollough connected an audio sensor to his camera. He then climbed a ladder and dropped the glasses. The sensor triggered the camera to capture what transpired just after the glasses began hitting the table. In his exhibit opening today at 49 West Coffeehouse, Winebar and Gallery, McCollough will display 25 photographs taken in the past five years, including color seascapes of the Chesapeake Bay. McCullough, 46, has a master's degree in geology and has run his own painting company for 20 years. Through Aug. 31. An artist's reception is 5-7 p.m. Sunday. Hours: 7:30 a.m.-midnight Sundays-Thursdays; 7:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. 49 West St., Annapolis. Free. 410-626-9796 or
