Welcome to the DO Digital Photography blog page. The web site is still under construction, but it hopefully will be ramped up to full steam in the near future.
Photography has always been a hobby of mine, but in the last few years I have become more serious with honing my photo skills. I particularly like to take pictures of people, places and things that tell a story, present ideas from a different perspective, or for just plain fun.
The young man in this picture was on a field trip to Washington, DC with his classmates. He was etching the name of a soldier who is listed among the fallen on the Vietnam Veterans War Memorial. Their teacher had given them an assignment to pick a name on the memorial, and then to research that individual’s background information…who he was, where he was from, how old he was, when he died… So, here is a young man trying to make sense of a conflict that was faced by those who were sent to a foreign land to fight a war they never really understood.
So, I have expanded my photographic journey, and I welcome you to take a look around the web site.
