Amish Buggy

Landscape, Photography

Lancaster County, Pennsylvania has the largest Amish settlements in the world and has become a major tourist destination to see the Amish villages and farms. Amish “plain people” emphasizes family, faith, hard work and simplicity. They don’t use electricity nor telephone at their home. They don’t drive cars either, instead the horse-drawn buggies are the main transportation means. Amish are good and highly productive farmers, though still using the old traditional horse-pulled plows. I don’t think I can live without electricity, computer, Internet — yes w/o cellphone.  But I do admire and respect their choice of living an old traditional way of simplicity!

      Thank you for visiting my blog. You have done beautiful work on Amish life. I love watercolor and wish I could do it but I guess I’d better just stick with my photography.
