Fotoeins Friday: RTW10, twenty-one

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

13 May 2012.

Is there enough to do to occupy four weeks in The Bahamas? This is the wrong question. Under continuous tropical conditions, it’s all relax, all the time, with a constant reminder to remain hydrated. Cold Kalik beer is a constant companion. After a couple of weeks, I’m in danger of getting used to the temperatures: low-20s (70s F) feels “cold.”

There are opportunities to hang out on Paradise Island, and in this case, at one of the bar-restaurants next to the shoreline at the One and Only Ocean Club*. The resort location is also one of the filming locations for Daniel Craig’s introduction as MI6 agent 007 in “Casino Royale” (2006).

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
