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).
