Change of Pace

Scenes taken on a road trip to Lancaster, PA last fall to give some folks a break from snowy or cold winter weather.

Excellent collages! You've captured the flavor of the Amish country beautifully. My favorite is of the kids going to school.

Thanks Mona & Elaine and glad you had a good trip, Elaine - welcome home. Hope you got some great shots on your trip and will be checking into your blog.

Thanks Far Side and WELCOME. It's true what you said that Amish don't like cameras, but these photos were all taken in public areas so no intrusions. Hope you come back again soon.

Do you follow Ruth's blog? She has pics of Amish up right now, and she also posts a lot of bird pics.

Daisy said...

Nice pictures, Beatrice. I like the ones of the kids the best.

A different style wagon from those around me.I haven't been in that area for quite sometime.We have a large amount of Amish all around where I live.

AC, thanks for the link to Ruth's blog, I will go there shortly and check out her photo posts.

Thanks Daisy, the kids were my favorite too, especially the one in the buggy.

Country Gal, I agree with your comments. It seems the Amish folks have updated their traditions to include drive-in banking too. You have a great day and weekend too - enjoy all the snow!

What a wonderful peek into a world so very different from the one I inhabit. Absolutely charming! Really super photographs and so well put together...I have NO IDEA how to make collages ;)

Thanks Desiree. I enjoy seeing your world too. The collage are super easy - no special software required. Just download Picassa and you can create them from your photos. There may be an online tutorial if you check in the help file. There are so many other things you can do with this free program; I hardly scratch the surface.

Thanks, Christer. You might also want to try using Picassa for some of your wonderful photos.

how awesome, thanks for sharing such great photos and you're right, it's a nice break from the snow

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Thanks Carole (COuntry Mouse) glad you enjoyed this batch of photos. I will soon do a series on Lancaster, PA barns.

Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog. You have beautiful pictures in this post! Our Old Order Mennonites in Ontario are more private and retiring than the Amish I saw in Pennsylvania. Our OOM will hide their faces if they see a camera pointed at them so I try to respect their privacy. My husband's Mennonite ancestors came to Ontario from Buck's County PA in 1800.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Welcome Ruth to our blog. Thanks for the visit and comments. I agree with your comment about respecting privacy and certainly if anyone didn't want me to take a photo, I would respect that. Some of the Amish people we saw actually waved, which was very nice. Please do stop by again and I will do the same on your blog.
