About

Jamie A.


Jamie A.

Jamie is a single guy living and working in northern Virginia, about 30 minutes from Washington, D.C. (United States). He grew up in the Ozark Mountains and served in the United States Navy for several years. After leaving the Navy, he worked for a few American companies which required him to travel. Eventually, he settled in northern Virginia where he lives alone — with his dog Murphy.

He considers himself fortunate to have an enjoyable job which allows him time to volunteer, write poetry, devour books, and pursue his love of photography. He  has been passionate about photography since 1989, and is slowly digitizing his archive of 35mm film negatives and slides.

In the summer of 2012, after much encouragement from friends, he decided to sell some of his photographic work on the condition that money be donated to charity. The problem, however, is that Jamie is disorganized, and not financially minded — he needed help. His friend Amanda was the perfect co-pilot for the Laughing Bunny project!

    Can I ask what it was like to serve in the Navy while you also being an artist? Are you sensitive? If so, did you find this challenging? Thank you.

    • Wow… great question. Reading and writing poetry was just something I did from escaping my daily job. Taking photographs was just something I loved doing. I wanted to capture the adventure. No, it wasn’t a problem (or challenging at all). Not sure if I am “sensitive” in the modern day derogatory slang, however sure I like to notice and appreciate my surroundings. Thanks for the questions!

  2. Hi Jamie 🙂

  3. Jamie – I am writing a post next week about my memories of visiting the Cherry Blossom festival some 20 years ago. I don’t have a cherry blossom photo and was wondering if I could use one of yours? Of course, I would give you full credit and provide a link to your blog.

    Let me know. Thanks!

    • I am so sorry I didn’t respond sooner! I totally missed this! I wasn’t ignoring you, I promise! Of course you can any photograph you’d like! Thank you!

      • Don’t worry about it! Thanks for your offer. I will let you know if I ever use one of your photos (and give you full credit, of course)!

  4. Hi Jamie I was lucky enough to spend some time in NYC. Your photos reminded me of that trip, everything was in bloom and crisp blue skies. The tiny garden in Greenwich Village where I stayed had the most beautiful weeping Korean Cherry tree. Thanks for memories. Cheers Sue
