Shy Ways of the Amish

Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Noticed these cute kids while driving around the Lancaster area, home to many Amish farmers. I must say, I find their simple way of living quite appealing somehow.

My favorite! A beautiful example of the curiosity the Amish children have of the "English." Tastefully presented, Sandi, and a joy to view. VV!

Just love the innocence of this image Sandi. The shy looks from the children, it's almost as if the young boy is doffing his cap at you. Regards and compliments of the season. John

Great capture Sandi. I like the expression on the kids faces. Excellent composition and nice tight crop. Shutter speed fast enough to keep the picture sharp but slow enough to show some movement in the wheels. I admire the Amish simple way of life but I still would not like to be without my digital camera.

One of the best of this series. I love the story the image tells and the spirit of the people it captures.

There is something very special about this - even though spatially the back window is very small it seems to open the picture up very large into a new world. Really like it.

Terrific capture, Sandi ... you captured their inquisitiveness in a sensitive and thought-provoking way. One has to admire the Amish for their dedication and family virtues that make this, as you point out, an appealing and simple life style ... particularly given the mess we've made of most things.
