Lake Burley Griffin, Commonwealth Place, Capital Hill, Parliament House, Old Parliament House, Canberra, ACT, Australia,

Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, thirty-six

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

9 September 2012.

In Canberra, I’m visiting a family whom I got to know when we lived and worked in La Serena, Chile. They’ve moved to Canberra, and I’m visiting them two-thirds of the way into my “year-around.”

It’s a calm beautiful late-winter afternoon, and we’re all on an hour-long boat trip around Lake Burley Griffin. In this image, we’re facing southwest to Commonwealth Place with over 100 flags representing nations with diplomatic presence in the Australian national capital. Behind Commonwealth Place are the Old Parliament House and the flagpole on top of the current Parliament House on Capital Hill.

I made the image on 9 Sep 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/640-sec, f/8, ISO200, 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as
