Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, twenty-two

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 May 2012.

A short interisland flight with BahamasAir over the water takes us from Nassau to Georgetown on Great Exuma Island. From Georgetown, we hop on a water-taxi to Stocking Island for an afternoon on the beach next to Chat ‘N’ Chill Beach Bar & Grill. Other visitors (and pleasure-boats) hail from the U.S., México, and various European and South American countries.

I made the image above on 27 May 2012 with a Canon EOS450D (Rebel XSi) and these settings: 1/400-sec, f/5.6, ISO100, and 55mm focal length (88mm 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

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
