Still Life?

Is this classified as still life when there is motion in the metronome pendulum? When at rest, the metronome has no motion, but as can be seen from the double flashing that was used here, the pendulum was in motion for the two seconds during which the image was exposed. Had the pendulum been still during the shot then I would most definitely consider this to be still life. But this, I'm not sure.

  1. I'd say its stil life as its mostly still, and the table top set up is a traditional "still life"
