Sunday morning Walter Rucki at the meat counter in his Abbington Ct. Market. “You can’t take photo’s without a flash in here can you?” A few days later I gave Walter this image and it hung in the Market for years. The general store, the corner market mom and pops were the hub of the community. I was a young photographer and was, am still honored to have this image hung at Rucki’s . The image is a moment in time, a warm honest greeting. When my next book is published Walter will be there smiling and saying good morning Peter. I didn’t live in Abbington but had friends there and often was in the store yet Walter knew my name as I’m sure he knew almost everyone’s who passed through the green wooden screen doors on a summer morning. I hope you all had a Walter Rucki in your life.
