From the Cradle to the Grave

A couple days ago I shared the image of the Amish men pushing the large cart down the road after a funeral was over. Well this image was taken a few feet up the road as one of the visitors maneuvered his horse into position to hook up to the buggy. For all I know he could have been the preacher who conducted the service.

Now upon closer inspection you can see that up on the hill the kids attending the one room school are having the time of their lives during recess with a good old fashioned snowball fight. So in this one image you have both the playful children enjoying some innocent fun and a stones throw away, a funeral service is drawing to a close. The kids represent the cradle and the elderly man the grave. All I know is when I look at this image, I keep waiting for the horse to send a hoof into this guy!

  1. Nice !! Don’t often see men in a longer overcoat and his hat brim looks extra wide so maybe he’s the preacher?? (haha) Whoever he is, this shot really captures their stronghold to tradition. Not sure what the wheeled tank is but my first thought was manure?? LOL
