Five Fab Fotos with Susan Angstadt, A Visual Conversation with Imaginative Professionals

Many of you may remember that our friend Susan was featured in “Five Fab Fotos” last year and now she has just started a new blog titled “Reading Revealed“.

Here’s a little bit from her “About me” page:

I’m a photographer at the Reading Eagle. I grew up in Spring Township, moved to New York City for 14 years, and now have lived in Reading, Pa., for the past 12 years.

Looking forward to some great posts!
