Interesting, unusual and utterly charming, Anita.

I'm rather curious about their way of living and why they chose it.

@Frida: The Amish choose to live separate from the world, preserving their religious faith and community traditions. Many of the lifestyle choices they make are designed to meet these goals.
I like your comp on this - showing the beautiful countryside in the bg.

Lovely pastoral image. I wonder how life is for those children.

@Kala: Life is good for these children. They are loved and have strong family and community support. They learn what they need to know for the lives they are to live. Education stops at 8 th grade--at about age 14. For those few who are not happy with the limited choices available to them within the Amish community, or who want to pursue more education, the system is confining. But the children I see are happy.
A beautiful and respectfully presented record . . a living history in many ways.

Another beautiful shard from your town. I really like this alphabet project unveiling the place where you live and also something from its atmosphere. The photo is great, showing little bit from the land. I also like the glowing school building. Really lovely, Anita.

Lovely image as simple and pure and perfect as its subject. Deserves to be shown all alone. I love this image.
