I live in a tropical Island Paradise...GUAM, Where America's Day Begins. It is awe-inspiring to view millions of beautiful photos from around the globe by hundreds of thousands of professional photographers, photo journalists, photography enthusiasts, and amateurs (like me), as well. It's a humbling experience to be in the company of these fine folks, who motivate, educate and enhance my drive to be a better photographer. What's especially pleasing is when I view my photos via my media and discover minute details I was not aware was there when I 'captured that shot'. Since posting on this site over 6 years ago, my photos have been used (by permission) in textbooks, travel and other online sites, school projects, and even war memorabilia - who knew... I hope you enjoy my photos.

I can imagine that was an awesome sight with all those "hawgs". We've got a few Harley hawgs here but a lot more hawgs of another sort. The University of Arkansas mascot is a Razorback, a wild hog that's lean and mean and roams the woods of northwest Arkansas. When football season comes, many of the people here go "hawg wild." Guy

Fita, You've got really good resolution on this picture. I zoomed in close and the only dark line I could see was the blue sky in the separation between the condensation trails from the left and right engines. Often these trails blend together as the condensation begins to spread and thin out But in this picture you can see the separation well back from the airplane. The atmosphere must have been very still on this day. This is a great capture when viewed at full size. Greetings from Arkansas, USA. Guy

Great heritage photo. Voted. Guy

The Spirit of Santa Rita villagers, incorporating their origin from Sumay, Guam. Sumay Village, Guam (now Naval Station, Guam) pre-WWII was once the rich hub of commerce in Guam until the U.S. Military took the land in 1945 via condemnation by eminent domain, from the original owners. The former occupants were directed to the hills & jungle without a name. The new residents then adopted Santa Rita (the "Saint of the Impossible") as their patron saint and called the new village Santa Rita but never totally relinquished their heritage in Sumay.

Boat leaving Hagatna Boat Basin in Hagatna taken from Hagatna Heights. Day started out bright & sunny then suddenly turned gloomy.

This is the Filipino Association cultural performing group in elaborate costumes, dancing only to drum beats, and has always captivated attendees at the Annual Guam Liberation Day celebration. This Association has celebrated on Guam annually rain or shine.

Young boy on bike appeared to be in danger of the roaring surf by Camel Rock while on a walking routine. Sunny day but hazy from salt spray from 3 days of heavy surf.

Fish Eye Marine Park with On Deck & Undersea Observatory. A long walk on the boardwalk from shore leads to undersea observatory accessed by stairway or elevator. Scuba divers intermittently feed and play with the undersea wildlife throughout the day as scheduled. Nice that it caters to physically challenged visitors.

Fascinating how this spaghetti of wires don't tangle when the rotars are turning at high speed. Photo of military helicopter at Asan Memorial Park, Guam.

What was once tangantangan jungle & beaches alive with seashell crabs, land crabs, sea cucumbers, etc. is now almost entirely concrete jungle housing numerous hotels, motels, condos, high-end shopping and entertainment primarily serving visitors/tourists. When 9/11 occurred & SARS became an endemic, tourist activities almost halted and Guam's residents kept Pleasure Island alive.
