Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: high luxury

Deep from the archives:

People live where tourists flock. As the image shows, the Bahamaian city of Nassau sees its fair share of wealthy people, as exhibited by the rental of this “Yes Dear” 18-metre (58-foot) catamaran yacht, complete with chartered crew. The starting rate begins at 20-thousand dollars for 2 passengers. Behind are the towers of the massive Atlantis casino and hotel complex. Given the relative isolation of these islands off the Florida coast, trying to reconcile what residents do for work versus the flow of offshore capital isn’t an obvious task.

I visited friends for a month in The Bahamas during my year-long RTW. From Nassau’s Eastern Parade, near the decent resto The Green Parrot, I made the image above on 18 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/200-sec, f/11, ISO100, and 34mm focal length (54mm full-frame equivalent).

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: snorkeling lesson

Deep from the archives:

Warm blue waters are an invitation: sit at the beach to nurse a drink, or like these people, a small-group of people learning how to snorkel. What is your kind of relaxation in tropical climes? These were some of my first images in the Bahamas at Nassau’s Junkanoo Beach. For those stuck in the dark grey cold doldrums of a (northern) winter, there’s always hope of rejuvenation at lower latitudes, or even, southern latitudes.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 3 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 53mm focal length (85mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-isq.

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: breezy beach drinks

Deep from the archives:

In the Bahamas, the bulk of the month-long stay is in Nassau on New Providence. Tonight we’ve headed over to adjacent Paradise Island where there’s a reserved table for sunset drinks at Dune at the Ocean Club. Formerly owned by The One and Only corporation, the property is now run by Four Seasons. The onshore ocean breeze brings in the intermittent crash of the surf, in contrast with constant chatter from inside the bar. The cold drinks and the setting sun provide additional relief from the humid tropical afternoon.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 13 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/320-sec, f/14, ISO100, and 55mm focal length (88mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-isi.

Fotoeins Friday in the Bahamas: chat and chill

Deep from the archives:

As part of a month-long stay in the Bahamas, my friends and I are on a short flight from Nassau airport on New Providence Island to Exuma International Airport on Great Exuma Island. We’re headed to George Town, about 15 km northeast of Exuma airport. The following day we’re on a water taxi for the short 1.6 km trip across the water northeast to Stocking Island. It’s merely a day to do absolutely nothing, except soaking some sun, sit all slack on the beach, and occasionally, dip the head and feet into the water, where manta rays might occasionally float by to say hi. Hungry? There’s always Chat `N Chill whose owners have entertained visitors from around the world.

During my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 27 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D/Rebel XSi and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 44mm focal length (70mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ilp.

Curly-tailed lizard, Nassau, Bahamas, myRTW, fotoeins.com

Fotoeins Friday: reptile resident of the Bahamas

Shortly after my arrival in Nassau, this little guy climbs up a tree to my height and gives me the once over. The curly-tailed lizard doesn’t look so curly with its tail stretched parallel to the branch. Curly-tailed lizards are omnivores about 10-15 cm in length. Satisfied I’m not a threat, the lizard scurries away to explore. I’ll see my fair share of the lizards over the following weeks in the Bahamas.

In the Bahamas during my year-long RTW, I made the photo above on 5 May 2012 with the Canon EOS450D, 70-300 zoom, and the following settings: 1/25-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, 300mm focal length (450mm full-frame equivalent).
