I AM Smiling – Mister Pete Celebrates his 88th.

Jun 16, 2019

Our next door neighbor and seemingly forever Havre de Grace resident, affectionately known as Mister Pete, poses here with his sister. There was a big family gathering, and far too much food – of which I ate more than my share. "Sis" said, when she saw the preview on the iPhone, that this is the expression he's always assumed when he's having his picture taken. Actually, I kind of like it. She calls him her baby brother, explaining that while he's older, she's the oldest of the girls while he's the youngest of the boys. 

I thought I'd take a break from posting this Month's First Friday images for this. The image is downloatable from the Misc. Street album on the Havre de Grace Street page. And yes, it’s an iPhone shot – the RAW shooting camera apps on the iPhone allow me to always have a B&W capable camera on hand wherever and whenever I am.
