Amish Buggy for sale and wash 20140808 _DSC9711

I didn't ride my bicycle to work today and I had some time so I drove a little while. I saw this buggy for sale, which has been on this farm for a while. What made it a picture today was the wash on the line in the background. Happy Friday to you!

Bruce causes crop failure https://www.armentphoto.com/blog/2014/7/bruce-causes-crop-failure Pam - "Bruce is wearing his leather jacket today to ride his motor cycle.

Me - "Yes although it is July it is pretty cold so I can understand his leather jacket."

Pam - "It is not good for the crops".

Someone please explain to me how Bruce wearing a leather jacket is not good for the crops.

I didn't want to ask.

Thanks,

boy and two horses 20140717 _DSC8927

This boy was waiting with the horses in a picture taken earlier today (July 17, 2014). He was obviously just there to keep things under control. There is nothing hooked to his axle. It doesn't look like the grass is long enough to cut for hay, but it is that time of year, so I'm guessing they were going to take a hay wagon somewhere... but I'm not sure.

Don't tell Pam... https://www.armentphoto.com/blog/2014/7/dont-tell-pam I have water on my desk. When it has sat for a couple of days I water the plants outside the gallery. Today I "watered" the plants with lemonade. Please don't tell Pam as she lovingly planted all these flowers. I wonder what will happen now?

Part of the Landscape https://www.armentphoto.com/blog/2014/7/part-of-the-landscape Yesterday things changed.

Normally, I see myself as the observer. I see things and take their pictures. Observe, click, and move on. Looking at and recording the landscape.

Yesterday I rode my bicycle to work. I’ve not done that in the past because there was nowhere to carry my camera, and when the need may arise my computer and “other stuff”. Pam bought me for my birthday (don’t panic, you still have time to buy me a birthday present as my birthday is not until August) a carrier like the Amish around here use to pull behind their bicycles to carry their things. Sometimes they carry their small children in these white, aluminum two wheeled carriers. They have “goosenecked” type attachment (the carrier has this not the Amish children) that connects the carrier to the bike under the bike’s seat.

So now I’m able to bike to work.

My bicycle was purchased when I lived in France and is pink and orange. I’m sure the bicycle dealer “saw me coming” and made a small fortune. They surely had an extra drink on their good fortune that night. They bicycle was reportedly made in Korea. I assume South Korea.

And yesterday, as every day, I wore my almost blue “Alaska” baseball hat. It was once blue, but has faded, mostly on top, with time and has areas where the combination of sweat and dirt has made it some muddy purple color.

So yesterday for the first time I biked to work. The Amish all looked twice; some had a wide grin because they recognized the Amish carrier and found it humorous that an English guy in a once blue baseball hat with a pink and orange bike was pulling it. The tourist sitting on the benches at the Blue Gate restaurant are all looking for and at the Amish buggies. They did not know what to think of the white haired guy with the pink and orange bike.

So now I’m not observing the landscape, I am the landscape.

This picture was taken at sunset so that the pants are a silhouette. And they are up high suggesting that the clothes are being hung from the second story of the house.

Rosemary Schmucker https://www.armentphoto.com/blog/2014/6/rosemary-schmucker At "Arment Gallery and Gifts" we have added the paintings and reproductions of Rosemary Schmucker. Rosemary is a painter from Middlebury, IN. When I asked her about having a story done on her by "Amish America" (a blog on all things Amish) she thought for a minute and said, "I want people to like my paintings because they like my paintings, not because I'm Amish". So please come and look at these fabulous works, you will find your own reason to like them.

I / we are not doing too well with our goal of posting one picture per day here. Please forgive me.

I've been very busy with a new web site www.amishimages.com. It has totally consumed me.

The new site is to showcase the Amish Images taken over the last few years. To this I've added only the best of other images.

More importantly I've added gifts from local Amish and other craftspeople that you can buy. Some are inspirational plaques and signs. Others are clever wooden puzzels.

... but the point of this post is to let you know I've not forgotten this blog... I've just gotten busy on this other site. Once it is launched I'll hopefully post here daily.

Thanks,
