This is Pete’s bike. Pete owns a fourth generation family-run machine shop in town that opened its doors in 1892. When it started, it was in the heart of what was really only a village at the time, but in the last 120 years has grown into a thriving city. Though the city has grown rapidly around them, because of the men that have run it over the years, the machine shop has stayed much as it was in the beginning: small, friendly, and a simple means of earning an honest living. It’s also been a a terrific place for amateur photographers like myself to go for photo shoots. So here’s to Pete and the rest of the boys for showing us contentment in a world that’s often addicted to greed and confused about the difference between need and want.
