Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, forty-two

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

14 October 2012.

At the southern tip of Africa, hopping on the City Sightseeing double-decker bus has proved efficient and convenient. Sure, it’s “touristy”. Sure, the double-decker bus sticks out with its bold colours. But the company’s “blue” route was a straightforward way to go from Cape Town south to Hout Bay.

For an early spring day in mid-October, conditions were cool and breezy, as expected for an area where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans converge. Next to Constantiaberg mountain, marine cloud spills from the top down into the bay. There’s time for a brisk walk along the beach, and there’s time to head inside and eat some fresh fish.

I made the photo above on 14 Oct 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/8, ISO200, and 21mm focal length (34mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-kEd.
