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

27 April 2012.

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.

20 April 2012: Washington, DC.

Up from the U Street Metro station at the Vermont Avenue exit is the African American Civil War Memorial, located across the street from the African American Civil War Museum. The sculpture called “Spirit of Freedom” was created by artist Ed Hamilton in 1997. The memorial reminds us of over 200-thousand African-Americans who served during the U.S. Civil War; its conclusion led to the liberation of over 4 million African-American slaves.

I made the image above on 20 Apr 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/500-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 23mm focal length (37mm full-frame equivalent).

Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, Tidal Basin, National Mall and Memorial Parks, Washington, DC, USA, fotoeins.com

19 April 2012.

On a beautiful spring day, it’s an easy walk around the Tidal Basin in Washington, DC. Beginning from the Washington Monument on the National Mall, I walk clockwise to the Jefferson Memorial, followed by the George Mason Memorial and Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial. Finally, the large stone blocks appear, towering over the area, with the likeness of Martin Luther King Jr. with a confident and contemplative gaze. Chinese master artist Lei Yixin created the sculpture which was opened to the public in 2011.

“True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.” 1958.

“I have the audacity to believe that peoples everywhere can have three meals a day for their bodies; education and culture for their minds; and dignity, equality, and freedom for their spirits.” Norway, 1964.

24 March 2012.

I’m in Bentonville, AR in the northwest corner of the state. In front of the brilliant Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is a stainless steel “tree”, standing 47.5 feet / 14.5 metres tall. The sculpture is called “Yield” by Roxy Paine from his “Dendroids” series. Opening in 2011, the museum was established by Alice Walton, a member of the Walmart founding family.

While Walmart is not of concern to me, what I cared about is how I was able to visit a friend from Bentonville who attended the University of Arkansas down the road in Fayetteville …

I made the image above on 24 Mar 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and the following settings: 1/200-sec, f/8, ISO100, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lKp.
