1976 The Littlest Patriot

1976 The Littlest Patriot

Posted to Flickr on 27 February 2009. Part of the JD's House of Miscellany series.

For a time my maternal grandmother Dorothy White worked in a flower shop. One day while visiting her there, she gave me this United States bicentennial-themed figurine from a bin that was filled with them. I remember feeling that I was getting something "for free" that everyone else had to purchase. For many years he was proudly displayed in a shadowbox on my wall.

Standing one inch in height, I imagine he’s playing a little patriotic tune on his flute.

This is one of many curious items collected in JD’s House of Miscellany.

This photo was taken in my kitchen using some pretty simple Gear. You might be surprised to discover how low-tech my "photography studio" really is.
