Amish Area, Ohio





A road trip yesterday to the Amish Areas of Ohio.
They have a sense of being part of the land
 that we could do well to copy.

Their religion tells them that God has keep them
together as a people in spite of much secular effort
to destroy them as a group.

They do not use modern things like electric power.
And they get along very nicely.   Thank you anyway.

These are some of the images. More to follow.


All with:   Canon    50mm & 85mm  lenses   images direct from camera

Steve,

They are keeping it basic by not bringing attention to themselves or outsiders.
In a simple lifestyle their life resolves the problem modern society has created with consumerism.
Good photography.
