Amish Mom And Kids

The store we visited yesterday was formerly owed by Amish folks. Although it changed hands last year and is now owed by a Mennonite couple, the Amish families in the area still frequent it. So do a lot of tourists! It is always a busy place in the summer. I was careful to take this photo from a distance, with my long lens, since the Amish don't use cameras, typically, and avoid having their photographs taken. Felt this one was safe to post as no one is identifiable in it.

Many thanks for your visits, comments, and favs. All very much appreciated!
A great shot, Barb! And you did well in getting a shot that doesn't identify anyone and in respecting their sensibilities. A fascinating way of life. Fav

I love the juxtaposition of the carriage in the front with the tractor int he background. I feel you did a great job respecting their culture.

I would find this sight so fascinating but must be hard not to obtrude. They live such a simple life…..must be quite calming.

They live a simple life in today's world. I love the horses but wish they had separate roads so that they were away from the danger of vehicles and people who drive too fast.
