Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, thirteen

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

24 March 2012.

I’m in Bentonville, AR in the northwest corner of the state. In front of the brilliant Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is a stainless steel “tree”, standing 47.5 feet / 14.5 metres tall. The sculpture is called “Yield” by Roxy Paine from his “Dendroids” series. Opening in 2011, the museum was established by Alice Walton, a member of the Walmart founding family.

While Walmart is not of concern to me, what I cared about is how I was able to visit a friend from Bentonville who attended the University of Arkansas down the road in Fayetteville …

I made the image above on 24 Mar 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and the following settings: 1/200-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lKp.
