Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, EastBay

10 years ago, I began an around-the-world (RTW) journey lasting 389 consecutive days, from 24 December 2011 to 15 January 2013 inclusive.

31 Dec 2011.

I’m in the Bay Area in northern California. After leaving behind years of science, I didn’t know what was in store for the future, except a year out on the road, fixed only by an RTW-ticket itinerary. At daybreak on New Year’s Eve day, I accompanied a friend who was flying from San Francisco airport back to family home in Canada. We began at Bay Area Rapid Station (BART) station El Cerrito Plaza, where I made this image of an incoming BART train in front of a spectacular early-winter morning sky. I took this visual as a good sign of things to come.

I made the photo above on 31 Dec 2011 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/25-sec, f/2.8, ISO100, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
