encompassing my creative lines collectively known as JD ArtandDesign.
JD A&D features art and craft, design projects, and
my thoughts that have emerged from my life events.
It is a constantly evolving site that I believe will capture your senses visually and emotionally. Through a wide range of images and words I invite you to be a part of my world- A world where happiness and pain co-exist, where the importance of friendships are realized, and simple things are simply wonderful!
The image above was captured on Tybee Island, Georgia- a lazy beach community just 15 minutes from historical Savannah.
The site is in the process of a major update- I am a transplant from Ohio now discovering new paths along the Southeast shores- a laid back world where nothing moves too fast, days are typically filled with sunshine and evening skies are ablaze! There is quite a lot to discover in this region so there will be many images added as the adventures continue!
Images of travels coast to coast and international adventures will be included- historical landmarks- forts and cemetaries, haunted pubs, and architectural beauties of days past.
Also in the site's new development will be a special section dedicated to the military veterans of the past and veterans of today. I joined a local American Legion as a vehicle to meet new people and a way to help veterans and their families.
To remain diligent in my goal offering support to veterans and their families, I have come upon my own agenda to help in a small way- thru my photography. Attending veteran events I have captured the nameless with faces and emotion- of bravery and comradeship that often goes unnoticed in the general public's eyes. My photos from public events capture humanity caught in the politics of democracy as brother, sister, mother, father.....our fellow souls.They are you, they are me.
A service I began in 2016 offers my photography capturing special moments in a veterans life- beach weddings, a family day, a just me day on Tybee Island. This is a service I will do for vets at veteran prices- my gift and thank you for their service and their families sacrifices!
That is just the beginning of what you will discover on my site- think of it as diversive paths that twist & turn and stay moving in one direction- forward! .....
I guess everything along our life's paths have created the people we are today... even if you have been presented a bad situation always remember to take the fork in the path, the upper path!
- you really do have a choice.
I hope viewing the pages within you just may think about why I included them in my online portfolio and to think about your self- to become mindful of others at work and play, to reach out to struggling souls, to discover and like simplicity,
to enjoy this ride.... it is oh so short.
