Amish Way Of Life...



A few weeks ago my son Shane and I headed to the Conowingo Dam in Maryland in hopes of photographing some eagles. It just didn't work out. We seen upwards of 40 bald eagles but they were not flying but setting on the rocks across the river. If was fun seeing them and we will try again a few times this winter. We did stop and photograph these Amish people baling hay. I can't imagine how hard a life it must be, yet the simple life is probably much better in many ways.

It is Tuesday so please visit Shane's site for a new post.

Brad, there are several Amish families living close to us. A tornado destroyed a house and many from PA arrived within days and rebuilt the house within a matter of days. These are some of the nicest people one can ever meet.

Very impressive! Not just your photos! :)

Theirs is a unique lifestyle. By forgoing much of the conveniences of modern life they are able to remain much more self-sufficient. Although I would not want to live that way I do have a deep admiration for their determination to not let society affect their lives.

I particularly like your powerful monotone image; it captures the dust, the dirt, and the exertion.
