Those must be the rich Amish since the ones around here don't have flashy equipment like that. Nice color and sharpness though.

Awesome carriage, lovely picture. Makes me start thinking about horses and learning how to drive (think it would be fun, never tried it). Your other pictures are wonderful - the child driving the miniature horse is priceless. Thanks for sharing them, brings back memories of my days owning quarter horses in Texas.

Some nice shots in that series Dr. C, I like the portrait of the horse best but the rest are quite good too. I am surprised there were no objections to you taking photographs of the people, I had understood that to be objectionable to many of the Amish.

Perhaps the public setting in a county fairgrounds allowed some leeway. I had forgotten about pictures being objectionable. No one commented there though; however, there were no smiles either, so I may have intruded where I should not have. Thanks for reminding me.

This auction of animals, carriages, and farm tools, along with the sale of crafts, occurs twice a year. I hope to have another opportunity to go there. The horses and mulesare some of the largest (tallest)and most beautiful animals that I have ever seen. I may take a ladder next time, because I struggled with composition.

Thanks to those with earlier posts. I appreciate all of your comments.

Regards,

Lawrence
