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

Near Farm Cove in Sydney, Australia, flower bed number 150 on the grounds of the Royal Botanic Garden contains these red canna lilies. The bright new springtime bloom appears in front of the famous Opera House and the Harbour Bridge (known also as the “Coathanger”).

I made the image on 30 Sep 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/1600-sec, f/5, ISO200, 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mwC.

From the top of the Roundhouse (1831), this northeast view along High Street faces turn-of-the-century architecture prevalent throughout Australia around the time of the gold rush. Hotel Fremantle (1899) is at left-centre, whereas the former home of the Fremantle Municipal Tramways (Car Barn, 1905) is at the very right. The city of Fremantle is located about 20 km southwest from Perth in Western Australia.

I made the image on 17 Sep 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/500-sec, f/8, ISO200, 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mwA.

In Perth, the sun, warmth, and visitors are in great abundance on this late-winter afternoon in Kings Park. One of the plants highlighted in the park is “eremophila splendens” which thrives in the area around Perth in western Australia. A full bloom in spring, the plant’s distinguishing features are the very “hairy” green leaves and red tubular flowers. The etymology for the plant name is provided by the Australian Native Plants Society:

•   Eremophila: from Greek eremos, “desert”; and phileo, “to love”; that is, “desert loving”, referring to the habitat.
•   splendens: Latin meaning “shining or splendid”, referring to the plant’s appearance.

I made the image on 15 Sep 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/50-sec, f/5, ISO400, 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mu1.

A couple of hours wandering the halls of Australia’s national government has reminded me of the summer I once spent living in and learning about Ottawa. In this view northeast from Parliament House are from top to bottom, respectively, the 1986 stainless steel coat of arms (“AUSTRALIA”) by Robin Blau; Mount Ainslie; Australian War Memorial; the wide boulevard that is Anzac Parade; and Old Parliament House.

I made the image on 10 Sep 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/320-sec, f/5, ISO200, 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-mtv.

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 https://wp.me/p1BIdT-msb.
