Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



This photo was taken on a trip to the Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Although  the Amish are normally camera-shy, I was given permission by the owner of the farm we visited to capture this photo.  I came upon the scene while waiting to take one of their buggy rides.
