A Present from the Past

When the present meets the past!

The WordPress Daily Prompt provides the theme of Present, which can be interpreted in multiple ways…

Whether we interpret present as the current time, or a gift, or something that we show to someone, or indicating that we are here, there’s no shortage of options!  So, I figured that I’d present you something from the past, when I was present at an autoshow….

A Present from the Past

This 1955 Chevy Bel Air also presented a view of what was then thought as the future, in its hood ornament; the highly stylized jet might well be in the air at some time in our future!

Have a wonderful day!

WPC – Future Non Sequitur

Time stands still

This week’s theme for the DailyPost Weekly Photo Challenge is Future, urging us to focus on the potential of things to come.  I am planning to post several images throughout the week, with today’s image giving us the opportunity to examine multiple timelines.

Timeline Non Sequitur

If you have ever wondered about the continuity of timelines and whether or not time travel is possible, you can look into this scene and wonder even more…  When I saw this collection of items from various times in history presented by this old power canal that used to enable the mills on its shores to operate,  I was stunned!

It is almost, as if someone went to different times to collect items that they fancied seeing in their backyard.  Time stands still here, as the airplane hangs in mid-air, waiting for the next tick and tock of the universal clock…

After capturing this image, I stepped through the portal very quietly and returned to the regular flow of time.

Technical Details

This image was shot with a Canon EOS 1D Mk III with an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens.  Exposure settings were at f/11  with 1/30 second and ISO 320.
