“Welcome to the Neighborhood, Terry; we’re glad you’re here.”
They were the most sincere words I’ve ever heard. They struck deep into my heart. It was all I could do to hold back tears. Yeah, it was that emotional. Fred Rogers had a way of doing that. And all he was saying was hello on my first day on set.
So began three years of photographing the production of Mister Rogers Neighborhood. It was the most rewarding job I ever had with the most exceptional people I’ve ever known.
Happy 50th birthday, Neighbors.
