Amish Country

I'm so sorry it has been so long since I've posted some pictures!  I've been working a particularly intense project at my "real" job (though, hopefully one day this will be my real job!) so I've been quite busy.  I'm still taking pictures every chance I get, I just have had a little less time lately to edit and post.

These samples come from a trip I took to Lancaster County -- better known as Amish Country -- a couple of weeks ago.  I absolutely loved Amish Country!

As you'll see by the many pictures, there were farmers markets, covered bridges, Amish cemeteries, and beautiful scenery.  You may also notice there aren't many pictures of the Amish themselves.  See, it is against the Amish religion to pose for photographs, so I tried to respect that and didn't try to take pictures of them except for when it is allowed (allowable times include: when they are working in their fields or drive past in a buggy, etc.). 

I think the pictures turned out great.  Hope you enjoy them!
