Model: Fire tree and other trees

After many postponement I finally have the time to photograph the fire trees in Lower Tumon and even able to get other photos of other subjects.

Aside from the fire tree this shrub with yellow flowers caught my eye

in its beautiful bloom


I had a hard time getting a clear shot at the fire tree in Hyatt. Any advice on how to reduce noise or how to shoot at a bright sun at my back?

Fire Tree at Lower Tumon

Have been planning to photograph the fire trees in Lower Tumon and the ones that are in bloom are in The Reef Hotel and Hyatt. 
Fire Tree in Reef Hotel



The one in Hyatt which I took pictures after eating breakfast at Burker King right across Tumon Sands.


The images I took in Hyatt is a bit blurry. I guess the bright sun cause it or I am not just good yet at adjusting the settings for landscape settings.

In between shooting the fire trees I got some other pictures enjoy!



I am still shy in taking pictures of passing people. Probably that would be my next project. It would be nice if I can catch the emotion of those walking or jogging in Lower Tumon, Guam.

Closeup Photo Shots During my Pangasinan VAcation

Was in the Philippines for a vacation and while at our home in Dulag Binmaley, Pangasinan was able to take these photos.

An unknown ornamental plant probably planted by our youngest brother  or my mom.



Our dog named Purina




An unusual fruit from a tree my brother planted



Mushrooms anyone? These aren’t edible though.



Even AngryBirds invaded my place already



And finally flowers, wild grass, and a coconut

Experimental Urban Photography

Was able to have a chance to try Urban photography.

Woke up early to get images of the early and the morning stuff of my area but it kinda ended into a blue sky and street photography.
Hope you get to check my images, would like to hear your comments and suggestions.

Micronesia Mall in Guam

source: http://www.micronesiamall.com
I decided to get my usual dose of Java at Coffee Beanery in Micronesia Mall instead of my usual Sunday coffee at Infusion.
While coming in I saw a co-worker and also passed by ABC store to check the price of my possible pasalubong but its kinda pricey will check some other possible pasalubong which is more lighter on the luggage and of course the pocket.
While walking can’t help but point and shoot some pictures but I was hesitant on some because 1) its a public place and 2) I might be charge with taking pictures without permit.
So check out some below hope you like it:

After getting my Sunday grocery was able to take some photos in the parking lot just outside Payless Supermarket. There is one section in Payless Supermarket that I wanted to photograph that is the vegetable section. I like how the tomatoes and all veggies are arranged. Next time I will take a photo and I hope the security wont stop me though.
