Sepia Scenes - Amish

Taken a couple of months ago while driving around near our camper. An Amish family in a buggy driving in front of us, I took the picture thru the window of the car.
To the person who commented about photographing the Amish, I asked a photographer the same question at an art show where he was selling prints of the amish. He said they don't like their privacy taken away, they don't like people coming on their property and taking there photo. He had special permission to photograph them. As for me taking this photo, they were on a public road and I wasn't invading there privacy. I see it as they were looking at me I was looking at them. Amish have been on TV for local news casts. They will never take a photo of each other that is against their religion.

Sober, beatiful children. Their looking directly at you, never caring that you are there. such a peace over the whole scene.

Mam that is so neat! I loved near the Amish in Ft. Wayne. I wanted to take pictures of them all the time! Alas I only got one realtively okay shot...nothing like this.

The sepia allows us to see this family in a totally different era - the horse and cart could be a picture from 100 or more years ago. A perfect subject for sepia!
