The three girls are not exactly thrilled with the near 100 degree heat but the young lad is all smiles as they head up a hill in Amish country. Maybe they were heading to the pool on one of the dog days of summer.
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.
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.
