Photo Hunt- Metal (The Amish Buggy)

      10 Comments on Photo Hunt- Metal (The Amish Buggy)

Photo Hunt’ s Theme today is Metal. The most obvious symbol of the Amish is their horse-drawn buggy which is made of metal.

I took shots of this buggy as my brother and I checked out a harness shop at the Amish/Mennonite Community in Jamesport, Missouri last month. I saw a lot of the Amish and Mennonite people and of course we saw many horse and buggies along the way.


As we left the Harness shop, I quickly took a snap of this Amish man who didn’t seem too happy. I didn’t know he was caught in my shot because all I wanted to take was the photo of the buggy.

I am so fascinated by the Amish and their way of life. Just looking at them made me imagine what it might have been like living in the 1800s. It feels as though one steps back in time when you visit any Amish Community.
