Photos by Carol Sinnott Crotty, Hendersonville, NC
Carol Sinnott Crotty is a photographer who grew up in the local area, right across the river in Fox Chapel. Since then, she has lived in many different places around the country, most recently in the Seattle area, Staten Island, and now in the charming small town of Hendersonville, N.C., near Asheville. Her life has been filled with many adventures. It has been my good luck to share many years of friendship with Carol, as she always sees the bright side of things, even when they don’t go as planned. This ability to find the beauty in the moment is reflected in some of the photographs Carol shares with you here. As you will see, even when summer feels like a distant memory, a spot of brightness and hope for better days might be as close as your windowsill.
