Ohio Amish #3





Things are done in the traditional way,
over in Amish country.
Milk cans still rest on back porches.
Wood is still milled into pallets 
and stacked in the light of the setting sun.

Children still play on old fashion swings.
At Amish schools, hidden from casual view.
And in the evening, many still walk home
after a long day at work.

Steve,

THe Amish life appears to be organized with everything in its place, time and order.
Outsiders could learn a lesson from
these Amish examples.
Excellent photography.
Are you going to exibit these photographs?
(other than on the web)
Is it time to publish a book?

Charles,
Yes...we could all learn from the Amish lifestyle. Although I still would like indoor plumbing and electric.

These and other photographs will be in my show at the Springfield Museum of Art in May of next year.
My show at Carriage Hill Metro Park just ended and I have nothing else scheduled until next year.

A book ?? Well, yes, I have been thinking about it.
Not right now but in the future.
In the mean time, a small book of photos, like a gallery with pages is not out of the question.

Steve,

If you like having electrical power in your home remember you are at the mercy of DP&L.

It would be nice to see you publish again after all these years of your dedication to photography.

Somewhere with the books I have your photography "Exposure Manual".

Charles,

Someday I would like to have a house that is all or mostly "green". Solar panels, geo thermic heating & cooling. Maybe even a wind generator. I would love to RECEIVE a check from DP&L every month.

You are right, it has been a long time since I published anything.
I am a bit surprised that there any copies of that old Exposure Manual around. I know that the Lima Library had one at one time. Hold on to it, it may well become a collectors item at some future time...heh heh.

Thanks for the encouragement.

Steve
