“Plain” geometry

Amish farmstead, farm buildings, Ohio's Amish country,

I have lived among “the plain people,” as the Amish are sometimes called, for more than 30 years. Over the years, I have marveled at the groupings of their nondescript buildings, the simple beauty of the textured angles. Of course, I am likely romanticizing their architectural practicality.

This farmstead is a good example. The combination of a fresh snowfall in the foreground and a bright blue sky in the background nicely framed this cluster of farm buildings at this Old Order Amish homestead.

“Plain” geometry is my Photo of the Week.

  1. The scene reminds me of the paintings of Eric Sloane. Are you familiar with his work?

    • Thanks so much, Mike. I wasn’t familiar with his name, but Googled him, and I’m sure I’ve seen some of his paintings before. That’s a high standard with which to be measured. I appreciate the comparison. Bruce
