Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, start

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

      Thanks, Cornelia. It’s yet another reason why I never delete images (JPGs and RAWs), despite the amount of space they occupy on hard disks. It’s all a part of this unspoken subconscious intuition that I might not recognize immediately, and yet years later, when I look at images, I go: wow, I got that. Or, I see something new in an image I hadn’t seen previously. You have also arrived at the same conclusion as me when I saw this image (again). Thanks again for stopping by!
