Autumn on the Farm

Cow checking me out!

Idyllic Farm Scene

I was on a taxi run in Southeast Ohio, and returning home, as I came around a bend in the road, I was pleasantly surprised to see this covered bridge (one of many in Ohio). Note the difference the lighting makes on the enhancement of the top photo.

Ohio Shed Decor

I loved this decor on the wall. A creative way of using old tires, etc. I couldn’t resist turning around and passing by the shed again, to get a photo.

Amish Barn-Raising

They didn’t want people getting up close during this barn-raising, and since I don’t have a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000, this is the shot I got this morning. this event might only happen in this community, once in three years. Two weeks and one day ago, the original barn was on fire. This is how it looked at 9 am this morning. I suspect it was finished by the day’s end. The Amish church community got together, and by today the farmer had another barn! For years this was done without the help of the machinery, to lift the rafters etc.

Twins’ First Ride

My last taxi job before vacation was to take these newborn twins and the family home from the hospital. Amish babies don’t look much different from other babies, do they! 🙂 Little boy on the left, and the girl on the right!

Grazing

Horse grazing in the pasture field, a typical sight in Holmes County, Ohio.

Amish Country School House

Outhouses (toilets) for Girls and Boys!

Backstop for the softball playing field!

I remember these items well from my grade school days. In those days most of the people in the countryside had one-room school houses within two miles from their homes (at the farthest).

Heading Out to the Pasture

Horse riders, and covered wagon procession near Benton, Ohio.
