The Receipt



I noticed this large Amish family heading down the road and they turned into the bank just up the road. The bank had three exits, so I pulled in a space and took my chances and picked one exit I hoped they would use. Surprisingly enough they used that one and I snapped this shot of the girls checking out the receipt as they headed up the road. This is along a very busy road and it was somewhat of a miracle the shot was not only car free but I timed it to get the carriage in the background as well. Shots like this are not luck but more seeing the composition coming together ahead of time and being ready to capture the decisive moment. As it turns out, they also got lollipops which they opened further down the road and that was probably the highlight of the day.
