WESTPORT -

A local photographer believes women are full of life, and she recently had her work showcased at a gallery in Westport.

Suzanne Sheridan says there is so much to gain from the wisdom of the ladies captured in her photos.

One image she snapped was of Anne Fiyalka, who was in a plane with Amelia Earhart when she was in high school.

"We should know that they have a great deal of life experience and love and care and that we could learn a great deal from them," says Sheridan.
