Dick, Mastic Beach Resident

Dick is a good friend of my mother in law Edith and on her suggestion, I included him in my new 'at home' portrait series. A widower and former Marine, he lives in Mastic Beach and is active in the community. He dressed up for the occasion in his old uniform, which he can still fit into almost fifty years later. I really love the vertical shot. It reminds me of a Norman Rockwell painting. Dick, of course, prefers the more flattering horizontal shot.
