Alison DiPietro is a reader, painter and nurse. She responded to my request for communication from you all with photos of her life. I LOVE that! Any of you who feel more inclined to tell parts of your stories with photographs, please follow Alison’s lead.
She lives in Springfield, Pennsylvania and really likes my sunset and sunrise photos. She has often commented on it being a challenge for her to get such shots because there is always so much “city” in the way. I think she handled it beautifully in this shot, don’t you?
Here are a couple of my favorites, shot over Baltimore Pike (this had me racing to Google to find out just exactly what Baltimore Pike was). According to Wikipedia: “The Baltimore Pike was an auto trail in the United States, connecting Baltimore, Maryland, with Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.” Here are Alison’s depictions of the sky over The Pike:
Apparently Alison set out the day after that big storm which hit the east coast to take some photos for us. She traveled for several miles behind a school bus:
“… following the beautiful light in the sky beneath the clouds and trying to find a place to take the photos.” She ended up at the park by her house which is where she finally caught the light…
… and gave her dog, Dutch Master Hankinstein… (I LOVE this big lug!):
… a chance to play:
I’m thinking it’s a good thing he didn’t see THIS guy:
She shot these pics around her home:
And then her daughter grabbed this shot of Alison’s grand baby, Carmella, having fun with Alison’s husband, Rick:
I love how Alison creatively answered my call for communication from you all. I hope some of you will follow her example and send me your photos. And you writers out there, please write to me about your lives. Those of you who have questions for me, please send them my way.
Love to you all,
