Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, twenty-one

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

Is there enough to do to occupy four weeks in The Bahamas? This is the wrong question. Under continuous tropical conditions, it’s all relax, all the time, with a constant reminder to remain hydrated. Cold Kalik beer is a constant companion. After a couple of weeks, I’m in danger of getting used to the temperatures: low-20s (70s F) feels “cold.”

There are opportunities to hang out on Paradise Island, and in this case, at one of the bar-restaurants next to the shoreline at the One and Only Ocean Club*. The resort location is also one of the filming locations for Daniel Craig’s introduction as MI6 agent 007 in “Casino Royale” (2006).

The MailBoat company provides domestic interisland delivery of mail and cargo; residents and occasional visitors have also hopped on these boats for slow inexpensive transport between the islands. Docked at Potters Cay underneath the Sidney Poitier bridge, the brightly coloured MailBoat (NP 6397, Fiesta Mail) provides service between Nassau, New Providence and Freeport, Grand Bahama. From information provided by the Bahamian government (c. 2013), boats depart Nassau Mondays 1700h, Wednesdays 1700h, Fridays 1000h, with return-trips Wednesdays 0200h, Fridays 1000h, and Sundays at 1500h. One-way sailing-times are 8 hours in duration.

I made the image above on 10 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/250-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). My thanks to the W. family for making possible my visit to the Bahamas. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-m0S.

It’s my first visit to both Nassau and The Bahamas where friends from Vancouver live and work. Despite the small size and its distance from the mainland, I could get used to the constant tropical weather and the absolute lack of urban pace. I’m at Junkanoo Beach, and the view across the water to Nassau Harbour Lighthouse includes many pleasure craft in the harbour, as well as a number of swimmers in the shallow waters. Looking at this ten years on, I still marvel over the different shades of blue in both sky and water.

I made the image above on 3 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/320-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 47mm focal length (75mm full-frame equivalent).

It’s a beautiful warm sunny spring day in Baltimore, Maryland, and I’m on a stroll around the city’s waterfront. Near the Seven Foot Knoll Lighthouse at Pier 5, this view southeast reaches across the Patapsco River to the big 1951 neon sign for the Domino Sugar company; the factory building is an active refinery facility continuing to produce sugar.

In 2021, the company replaced the deteriorating neon sign with an LED-sign which was relit for the July national holiday.

I made the image above on 27 Apr 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/250-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 55mm focal length (88mm full-frame equivalent). My thanks to MB and MK for making my visit to Baltimore possible. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lW6.

The Vietnam Women’s Memorial is located in the National Mall in Washington, DC. Inaugurated in 1993, the statue by artist Glenna Goodacre (1939–2020) is a tribute to the over 10-thousand American women deployed to Vietnam during the Vietnam War. The names of eight women killed on active duty are included in the list of over 58-thousand names on the adjacent Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
