Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography


Given permission to photograph

View a slideshow of my adventure to Amish Country in Pennsylvania and Ohio, two of the largest Amish communities.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I must admit I am fascinated by the Amish people and their simple lifestyle. I’ve visited and toured their home, enjoyed a home cooked meal, seen their beautiful landscapes, taken an Amish buggy ride, visited their school and learned a little about their way of life.

How interesting to be able to live a simple life in an increasingly complex world.

  3. Francine, this is wonderful, thanks a lot! I was so happy to read your post about the Amish as we talked a lot about the amish culture, furniture and the other way of living the other day. You have enlightened me! 🙂
    Greetings from the North

  5. Cool pictures, Francine!

  6. Its a fascinating lifestyle, but could you miss out on seeing the world? I know I couldn’t.

  7. “I must admit I am fascinated by the Amish people and their simple lifestyle…”, yes, Francine – and you created a wonderful tribute with your slide show. But nevertheless, I couldn’t live without electricity…
