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 our planet Earth 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.

Camel Rock, backed by Chamorro legend and proudly sits guarding this WWII-War in the Pacific Memorial Park in Asan. This park boast of breezy resting areas with hundreds of coconut trees lining the seashore, monuments of people & events, concrete barbeque facilities, concrete picnic tables/seats, & sidewalks the completely goes around the park area. This is also the site for Annual Easter Egg Hunts, Annual Make-A-Wish Kite Shows, etc.

I agree it's always a marvelous show. I could take it everyday without ever getting bored, I think.

In July 1994, culminating the WWII - 50th Anniversary, this War in the Pacific memorial, honoring Guam fatalities, as well as those who survived was unveiled. In 2007, 34 of the 99 bronze plates were pried loose, stolen & sold as scrap at a scrap metal company. The scrap metal company sent the bronze plate off-island to Asia even as it saw hundreds of people's names on the plates. The Island of Guam community were shocked, then anger set in. The perpetrator (a Micronesian man) was prosecuted and sentenced to prison but got off so light, it's not even funny.


These antennas look like "ground feelers" that just grew out of the hills & valleys. No wonder just about everyone, including children on Guam are so communication savvy. Pic taken by my friend's house. If you look carefully in the distance background, you can see many more antennas. NOTE: Notice the salt spray in the background provided by the heavy wave activity generated by very active Pacific jetstream, as reported by the NWS.

This crash site memorial was erected for the KAL801 fatalities and handfull of survivors when KAL801 tragically crashed into the hillside at Nimitz Hill in 1997. It was raining very hard that early a.m. and the airport glide slope was down. The became the temp. home of Guam Army National Guardsmen until investigation was secured. NOTE: The haze in the background is salt spray which just about covered the entire Island from very heavy wave activity caused by the active Pacific jetstream as reported by the National Weather Service. Guam had wonderful breezes then.

This 2.22.10 is a revisit of the tree I took a picture of on 8.11.07. I went back, after almost 3 years to check if it was still there. I was amazed it was still there and had various jungle ferns on the top and back of what appeared to be the head but the front where it appeared to be 2 eyes and a mouth did not have any vegetation. It even seem as though it were happy to see me. Of course, I'm not kidding! :)

Hi Guy. On Kalakuau Avenue which is the street that goes directly to the Honolulu Zoo, one street approximately 1/4 mile is populated by street performers, i.e. human robots, painted men, dressed "giants on stilts", a white "man" angel who, mimes, artists, and all kinds of attractions that come out as soon as the sun starts to set. This allows you entertainment for very little expense. When we're there for 2 weeks, we're on that street for 10 days and don't go to our hotel until we get tired. The thing is, we don't get tired because there's so much to see out in the streets. Just Fascinating. Have a great day. It's sunny but very breezy here - typical day in paradise.

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
