129-2020 – Chamomile

Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, was taken in my front communal garden, and is a close-up on a chamomile flower. I also liked this image but I like the symmetry in the first image more. A few other shots taken that day during the same session. To capture this image I used a Canon 5D Mark III, with an Oshiro 60mm F2.8 Macro lens in bright sunlight.

Coalhouse Fort at sunset

Coalhouse Fort is an artillery fort in the eastern English county of Essex and occupies a strategic location on the north bank of the River Thames, fronted by a moat and saltmarshes. It was built in the 1860s to guard the lower Thames against seaborne attack. It stands at Coalhouse Point on the north bank of the river, at a location near East Tilbury that was vulnerable to raiders and invaders.

Costa Maya, Mexico

Costa Maya, Mexico used to be one of Carnival Valor’s stops on the western Carribean itinerary in 2006. The Cruise ships usually docked there when not able to dock somewhere else due to rough sea or because of the destruction caused by Hurricane Wilma and Emily in 2005.

Atlantis Bahamas on Paradise Island

Atlantis is located on Paradise Island, Bahamas and was my favourite place to visit while working as Audio Visual Staff onboard Carnival Triumph. For over 3 years I travelled and filmed the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbeans. If you would ask me which all-inclusive resort I would choose to spend my family holiday, I would definitely recommend Atlantis Bahamas on Paradise Island, without hesitation. In 2006, I was working onboard Carnival Valor when I visited Atlantis again with my parents.

Memories from Saint Martin

These are some of my memories captured mainly with my first DSLR camera, an Olympus E-500, in and around Saint Martin – a small island in the northeast Caribbean Sea. At the time (2005-2006), I was working onboard the Carnival Valor as Audio Visual Staff. Open Deck, Carnival Valor Golden Eagle Catamaran, Saint Martin
