Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, start

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

What I like about this image of street musicians in San Francisco’s Chinatown is a kind of “musical chairs”, and how the number of faces inside and outside seem to look in different directions, but share the common feature of looking to satisfy a singular moment or a question in curiosity.

I made the photo above on 31 Dec 2011 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/100-sec, f/5, ISO800, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lvQ.

On California Street between Stockton and Powell, this downhill view faces northeast to the Bay Bridge at centre in the background. Two sets of tracks embedded in the pavement are for the cable car route on California Avenue, available to both residents and visitors. There are three cable car routes in downtown San Francisco: California (C; no.61), Powell-Hyde (PH; no.60), and Powell-Mason (PM; no.59).

I made the photo above on 31 Dec 2011 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/800-sec, f/4, ISO100, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lvX.

I’m in the Bay Area in northern California. After leaving behind years of science, I didn’t know what was in store for the future, except a year out on the road, fixed only by an RTW-ticket itinerary. At daybreak on New Year’s Eve day, I accompanied a friend who was flying from San Francisco airport back to family home in Canada. We began at Bay Area Rapid Station (BART) station El Cerrito Plaza, where I made this image of an incoming BART train in front of a spectacular early-winter morning sky. I took this visual as a good sign of things to come.

I made the photo above on 31 Dec 2011 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/25-sec, f/2.8, ISO100, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lvN.

The F Market & Wharves streetcar line appears as a means of public transport on The Embarcadero near San Francisco’s waterfront. In this image, San Francisco Municipal Railway streetcar PCC number 1058, called the “Chicago”, is seen travelling westbound towards Fisherman’s Wharf with the lights of the Bay Bridge in the background. This streetcar was built originally in 1948 for service in Philadelphia.

I made the photo above on 27 Dec 2011 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/250-sec, f/1.4, ISO400, and 50mm focal length (80mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-lvl.

Fotoeins Friday: Santa Monica video performance

Is her name Monica? And if so, is her voice a holy aural delight?

I guess I’ll never know, as I photographed musician and videographer from a distance, and I didn’t summon the nerve to introduce myself and ask about the video. They could’ve been working a PR or marketing angle for the singer-songwriter. Or they might’ve been visitors like me. At the Santa Monica Pier in greater Los Angeles, there are sights and sounds, vibrant colours and excited people. My need to know in most cases gets me into trouble, but I can live with the mystery about these two.

I made the photo on 22 February 2012 with the Canon EOS450D, 70-300 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/200s, f/8, ISO100, 150mm focal-length (240mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-8KV.
