Photography captures a moment in time
This photo represents a moment in time. As I flew up the coast, on the way to visit my parents, the views from my window seat were amazing. Who I am, what I’m doing, what I’m thinking and where I fit in the world are encapsulated in the action of taking this photo but only what I see is available to you, the viewer.
Delta– for this week’s photo challenge, Erica V asks us to share a picture that symbolizes transitions, change, and the passing of time.
The Richmond River, as it spills out into the sea at Ballina, looks to me like a brown snake wending its way through the patchwork of rural fields. The delta is very evident from this far above and, in this way, I have interpreted the prompt in a very literal way.
Delta meaning: a triangular tract of sediment deposited at the mouth of a river
Photography captures a moment in time; it captures a sliver of any given movement, not the entire motion itself. Only the photographer can see the whole picture…explore the ways in which a single photograph can express time, while only showing us a small portion of any given moment.
It’s also a photo that signifies transitions and change to me.
Life itself, as signified by the river, flows on.
I’d love to know what you think, leave me a comment below.
