Life in The Fairmount – Our Porchtrait Project

Meet Donna, Chester and Nutmeg over in the 1900 block of 6th Avenue. 

I loved capturing Donna’s Porchtrait on the beautiful front porch of her 100 year old home! 

When I asked Donna my Porchtrait Project question’s about life during Shelter In Place, here is what she had to say….

It’s just me and my two dogs, Chester and Nutmeg! My daughter, Sarah, is going to PA (Physician Assistant) school in Maryland right now, so I don’t see her often enough, but we talk all the time.

What’s been the most difficult thing for you about shelter in place/social distancing? 

Not being able to hug my friends! And not being able to travel, hike, and kayak.

What do you miss the most during Shelter in Place?

I’m a very active person, so to have to stay in one place and not be out doing things has been hard. On the other hand, I talk with my extended family a whole lot more, I connect with people in different ways now, I go to virtual happy hours with my work colleagues…and that is all goodness.

What do you look forward to the most? 

Hugs. Travel. Being in the wilderness.

How long have you lived in Fairmount? 

It’s coming up on 3 years.

Share your favorite thing about living in Fairmount?

I love the way that people care about each other. This has only increased with the crisis, and it warms my heart to see so much love being shared.

What is your favorite business in Fairmount? (And why)

One of the things I have been doing since this started is supporting local businesses. I have discovered new restaurants, yarn shop, car detailing service, brewery, bakeries, tea shop, online yoga teacher, a musician that also builds raised bed gardens, and a strawberry farm. And I’ve gotten to know the people that own these businesses and they are amazing! 

What kind of work do you do? 

Software developer for IBM. Love working from home!

About the Photographer – I’m Ronnie Mosley, my wife Carol and I have lived in the Fairmount almost three years in the 1500 block of College Ave. My wife is the best neighbor anyone could hope for; I love people through the lens of my camera and Carol loves them with acts of kindness.
