When I am traveling, I love to take photos of things that has my interest, most of them are more into natural landscape and scenery. Taking photos of people is not really my thing, but if taking shots of natural expression of human who are totally different from person standing still and smiling in front of camera, sometimes it is interesting to me if I took a shot similar to a stolen one where the people or person is unaware that he is being photographed, that’s where the real human expression or emotion shows. When I had a chance to watch some part of local dance of Chamorro, I took my chance to get some shots and below were the result of it. I was reminded of Hawaiian dance and not sure if the similarity are because these islands are all located in the Pacific having common a geographic location?
