Weekly Photo Challenge: Delta

Taking Time

Taking Time | Schiphol | 2017

This week the weekly photo challenge (WPC) from Word Press’ “The Daily Post” has the theme “Delta“. We are called to share a photo that signifies transitions and change. As this is very close last week’s challenge “Transient” I take a slight angle on the theme.

A delta is also the difference between two locations, the difference in time and distance between two locations. Both interpretations are covered by the above Street Photo I took in Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport. The guy in the video screen of the gigantic clock working to determine the exact time by drawing a new minute hand. The plane behind the huge windows ready to cover the delta in distance and time to its overseas destination. Coincidentally, the big Airbus is from Delta Airlines. I took the photo  with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 and the mZuiko 40-150mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom.

To also cover the much more traditional interpretation of a river delta here are two photographs from the Columbia River Delta in Oregon. The image of the Astoria-Megler-Bridge spanning the mouth of the Columbia River was taken at 13sec,  f/20 and ISO 200. The photo of the ship was taken from the old docks in Astoria, image specs are  8sec f/16 and ISO 200. Both photos were taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 12-40mm F/2.8 Pro Zoom.

  1. I wish that I had known about that clock prior to my trip to Amsterdam. Somebody else mentioned it after I had returned home. Oh well….there’s always next time ;).
    I love those photos of the Columbia River Delta. They create such a serene feeling. 🙂
