This past summer Ted worked for a guy that used to own a photography studio here in town. In fact, he owned the studio where Joey and Alex had their senior portraits taken. This guy (Art) took both Ted's and my senior portraits, but then sold the business about 15 years later.
Now Art is semi-retired, but works occasionally for an aerial survey company that just happens to have an office next to the plumbing shop where Ted works.
One day this past summer Ted did some work for him and they got to talking. Art had known Ted's dad and knew that we had built a new home and knew where it was. I'd mentioned to Ted in the past that I would just love to have a picture of our house from the air, so Ted mentioned that to Art. Fortunately we live pretty close to our local airport, so a pilot wouldn't have to go out of his/her way.
About two weeks later, Art was coming out of the aerial survey office when Ted was walking into the shop, and Art called over to Ted. He gave Ted a couple of pictures of our house! Ted asked him what he owed him, and he said nothing! But if we wanted them enlarged, we could take them to a local store and have them done there. We haven't done that yet, but we probably will.
We were really pleased with how these pictures turned out!
