There is a steady stream of passersby and bicyclists along the street in front of Ted Wolfe’s Chautauqua porch. A wave or greeting occasionally punctuates our conversation. Thoroughly relaxed in his familiar wicker chair, Wolfe, 77, is a man clearly comfortable in his own skin. He channels a bit of James Stewart with his laconic style. Retired for nearly 20 years from a successful corporate career as a marketing executive and board member, he has been able to indulge a number of passions, including astrophotography. Introduced to the region when he joined Welch’s corporate offices in Westfield, N.Y., Wolfe held Chautauqua dear, even as his career moved him elsewhere. He has photographed the sun many times from his Chautauqua backyard.
