Amish Ladies at the Belleville sell


Here you can see an Amish mother and her daughter walking around at the sell. I try not to get their faces. They do not want their faces photographed, it's against their religion. I try to respect that.

Great shot! They must have had lots of delicious things (like strawberries!) for sale at the market.

Lori, Yes, I bought some strawberries there. I didn't get many, my grandson ate most of them. LOL. There's nothing like fresh strawberries. I need to go back because I forgot how delious fresh produce is. I get it from the store most times and it isn't the same.

Beetle said...

very neat market,I always don't know to bargain,do you have to do that in this kind of market?

That's why I perefer go to the store

lv2scpbk said...

Beetle, No I don't bargain down at this market. The prices are reasonable as is. And, sometimes I feel this is part of their livehood.

If I was at a yard sale I would but this is different.

Most of the ladies and girls dressed like that when I was a small boy. Mother wore aprons and bonnets well into her 60s.

Nice shot.

Interesting photo. I must confess that I was quite impressed when, in 1982, we stopped for lunch somewhere in an Amish community in Pensylvannia!

Thanks for sharing your personal history of Raystown. I often wondered where the "Raystown" from which that branch of the Juniata and the lake were named after had been. I guess I never thought about them having to move graves too. Interesting!

Nice capture of the Amish lady. I'm sure you enjoyed your day, some day I'll have to visit the sale.

I understand about trying not to offend people by taking pictures of people who'd object. It isn't always easy to tell who'd be upset, either.

I'm always surprised when (as happened recently) someone at a large public event (such as AIDS Walk NYC) tells me not to take their photo.

Hey, buddy, if you don't want people to see your face, why are you here -- the whole event is on the news, for heaven's sake!

Annulla, It is well known around our area that the Amish people do not allow or do not want their faces photographed. I don't think they mind anyone taking their photo as long as their face doesn't show. Alot of the Amish wonder why other people are so fasinated with their culture and are interested in photos all the time.

They look like simple, self-respecting women and you did a great thing by not photographing their faces.
Here in Mumbai too, I ask the person if I could take a photograph, and I do only if it's a yes. Some ask what I would do with it?
I tell them it will be on the internet with a description. There are many people all over the world who are interested in knowing about life of people living in Mumbai.

Something you dont see here in Poland! Great shot!

Jean said...

This is what I love about the daily photo blogs, you get to see another community through local eyes.
I find the Amish fascinating and admire their way of life.
Great photos.

Great shot! And very honorable of you to respect their religion.
