Today I started out taking a video on the east side of Portland and was truly uninspired. I drove into to town and parked in front of city hall, grabbed my camera and started walking towards the Old Port. I stopped next to a man named Peter who was just there enjoying the good weather. He noticed my camera and asked if I was taking pictures of the surroundings. I told him I used to take pictures of street people and made them into portraits.
Peter was originally from Boston and now lives on Munjoy Hill. He is a chef but prefers to be know as a cook who prepares great food. He is Greek and started cooking with his father but did not like the catering business so he made his way to the North End of Boston where he learned Italian cooking.
