A Tragedy

amish-florals _DSC6250-copyThis is an image I shot this summer at an Amish roadside stand and I just got to it this week. As I opened the image,I was suddenly reminded of a terrible tragedy that occurred in our county this past week.The flowers,numbering eight bouquets reminded me of seven children and a young wife who are without a father and husband after an accident at an Amish farm. The little sign was posted with the flowers at this stand. Anyone who follows my blog,knows I capture Amish life and this farm is in an area I often shoot,so my heart aches for the family,but I know their faith and close-knit ties will carry them through. A link to the story here.
