    The Amish are a religious group who live in settlements in 22 states and Ontario, Canada.
    The oldest group of Old Order Amish, about 16-18,000 people live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
    The Amish stress humility, family and community, and separation from the world.

    Nice, thanks for sharing these. They are a unique sect! :thumbup:
    I'm planning to pay a visit to Lancaster county one of these weeks.

    Are these from Canada or Penn?

    You stole their souls! I was in Lancaster years ago with my parents and stayed there for a few days. We saw several amish and I was amazed to learn that they wouldn't allow their picture to be taken. I tried to make it back last year on my way back from the NE but didn't make it down that far into PA.
    Anyway, good shots. I noticed the "Got Milk" sticker too.

    Nice pics, The fence adds a lot to #2. Good work.

    yesterday on my way home from work I came across a Amish family in a buggy returning from the local grociery store. I was amazed to see 4 cases of Mt Dew in the back next to all the bags. I was kicking myself for not having my camera with me. I guess even the Amish can't the powers of the Mt Dew
