Really beautiful b&w - like Walter wrote, could be a hundred years ago... I'm wondering how these people live without nowaday's comfort.

Beautiful! The B&W totally works; it also goes hand in hand with the stereotypical black and white Amish colors.

Agreed.
On some level, I think it's rather brilliant that they didn't allow themselves to indulge and then become dependent on all those extra things most of us seem to 'need' today.

Bob,

another great shot from Amish country. These have all been really great. Gives a very nice rustic atmosphere.

I agree with Gary, very nice people, there was a community close to where i went to undergrad and they would drive in to town often for supplies etc, always super polite and nice.
