Photos of Guyana – by Francis Quamina Farrier

 Photos of Guyana – by Francis Quamina Farrier

A photo of a bird’s eye view of Georgetown could be so Beautiful; but it is a different scene on the ground. As the saying goes, a picture is like a thousand words, and I’ve decided to submit a few of the photos of Georgetown taken in July, 2014, on the ground.

    Hello Compton. I’ve been flying with Fly Jamaica fairly regularly since they commenced their New York/Georgetown service, and while their service could do with some improvements, I do not have any serious issues with them. My e-mail is “fquaminaf@hotmail.com”

    As a photographer in South Florida, I must say you have a great eye for composition and telling the story. Love the photos, keep posting.
    Thanks,
    Raj
