Best of Guam and Beyond – Part 1

July 30, 2011

In checking the stats for the blog today, I noticed that we’ve been at this for over two months with a typical photo content of 9-10/ day, so youve seen 700_ shots of Guam and points east.

That’s a considerable number of photos.

In posting them – we’ve attempted to tell a story each time, a photo essay of sorts – commentary with meshes with the shot so as to add depth to the picture.

There’s a problem with this approach, though.  You see, for every published photo there’s 2 that went unpublished.  Many of these photos are crappy shots, to be sure, but others are good enough for prime time.  

Sometimes a shot was good – but didn’t fit the story.

Other times there’s a plethora of shots of a good thing, and it’s hard to pick one over the other.

And then there’s the times where the shot may be a cool one – but there’s not enough supporting photography to make a solid storyline. the interest of providing a feel for Guam in a series of posts, the  following random photos for the next few days are dedicated to showing the ‘best’ of Guam.

If there’s any method to this madness, it’s in the photo sequence.  You’re getting them in the order taken over the past three years.

It’s an interesting place, this Guam.

From pristine beaches, nature reserves to tourist havens – it has many things worth checking out.

Rough – yet refined; urbane yet one of the last US frontiers.

When I was a kid, I’d see films and photos of a Pacific Tropical paradise.  Later, I’d listened to Jimmy Buffett paint a picture of tropical escapism through song.

Guam is one of these places – and you can find what yo’re looking for here – whatever that may be.

We’re fortunate to have experienced it.

    No really. I will fly halfway around the worl to eat a cheeseburger whose bun is branded with a skull and crossbones. Seriously. Especially if they have bacon to put on it.

    I’d rather eat a chocolate house.

      Glad to see you’re back!

      While consuming a chocolate house would be tasty, I’d have hell to pay in the form of heartburn later. The bane of middle age, they say.

      GREAT photos and narrative on Italy – loved every one. Thank you for posting them!
