Amish Simplicity

I visited Amish Acres in Nappanee, Indiana in September 2009. These photographs are some I took there. I really like simplicity in my photographs and simplicity in my life. 

Here's a tad bit of History of Amish Society and Amish Acres:

Often misunderstood and confused with other small sects, the Amish history is sorted into fact and fiction. With roots firmly planted in the Reformation, the Amish remain a success story that has stood the test of time arriving before the Revolution in Pennsylvania to escape persecution in Europe in startling ways. Indiana has become the second largest Old Order Amish settlement in America. The first Amish settlers in Indiana settled on farms surrounding what is now Nappanee.
