I’d like to share what probably is a contrast to the photos I’ve previously posted on this blog. I took these some time ago while back east. Some may recognize without any introduction the place, for those of you who don’t know it’s Pennsylvania Dutch or my preference Amish country. In an attempt to summarize for those who don’t know, it’s an area in the eastern part of America where a people originally from Germany have settled in America. The name Pennsylvania Dutch is a misconception that over time hasn’t been corrected from the original misnamed. The area they live doesn’t neatly fit in Pennsylvania and they are not originally Dutch. Dutch comes from the mispronunciation of the name German. Deutsch. I, like many others have an affection for the atmosphere of area for its quiet, peaceful & timeless beauty. It harkens back to a different time in America, which as you can see by the Amish gentleman in the mule drawn cart, have no intention changing.
