Each week, the Gazette presents the area through the eyes of Gazette photographers.

Alex Garland, 23, of Indiana, tended Friday to the 1,000 origami paper cranes she made and hung from the ceiling at the Heritage House Suites along South Sixth Street in Indiana for a dinner party last week. Garland, whose mother, Katie Garland, is the manager at a Heritage House, spent about a year making them. She got the idea from the 1977 book "Sadako and a Thousand Paper Cranes," about a child victim of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima who was inspired by a Japanese legend that someone who created 1,000 cranes would be cured by the gods. Sadako Sasaki died before she could finish. 

On Wednesday, Erika Yasolsky, 9, helped her grandmother, Elva Yasolsky, set up the Eagle Run Farm booth at the Farmers Market in the parking lot of the former BiLo along wayne Avenue in White Township. The farm, in Timblin, Jefferson County, is owned by John Sherry. Erika is the daughter of Heather and Steve Yasolsky, of Altoona. This week is National Farmers Market Week. Indiana's is one of 300 such markets in the state. (Teri Enciso/gazette photo)
