Always Busy

Wether you are working the fields or delivering a piece of furniture,there is always something to be done in Amish country. I believe the desk was recently completed for delivery after I saw it come out the lane of a furniture shop. I basically drove ahead and hoped it would pass me and with a little luck,it went by just as the guy turned around in the field.

Redneck Amish

I had to hit the brakes as I passed this buggy maker in rural Lancaster county after I noticed the redneck decal on the front. Just when I think I have seen everything, I find something that reminds me I have not. The buggy is waiting for its last front wheel to be put on and then I might see it on the road during my travels.

Heading to the Swimming Hole

This is one of those moments that gets me excited about being a photographer and getting the chance to capture those little glimpses into Amish life here in Lancaster county. I was headed down this back road and way in the distance I saw some sort of strange convoy of sorts and not knowing what it was yet,I pulled over and waited with camera in hand just in case. About a hundred yards away I realized it was a group of Amish kids with all their swimming apparatus along and they were zipping along so I am lucky to get this shot. They had tubes,towels, floaties and even a beach chair in the back,which Made the near 100 degree day bearable. I have no idea if they have swim suits or just go in like they are shown but they all smiled at me as they passed me.

Evening Skies

A nice night in Amish country included these neat clouds. I had high hopes for a spectacular sunset because I was sure the setting sun was going to light the sky up,but the sun went behind a cloud bank just when it was getting to the horizon and it fizzled real fast.
