Amish praying I love this photo I do hate his face is showing as I know they do not like that...I wish the photographer had used respect on that part. I love the simplicity of this photo.

At the public library, rather than in the home. As one Dunker bishop observed correctly, "There's evil stuff on the Internet you don't want to let into your home." At the library, it's in public and presumably filtered.

As a kid we would go to Amish country every year. I became friends with a young Amish girl who worked for the motel and in exchange, she was allowed to swim in the pool. Her bathing suit was a dress! It amazed me... She amazed me!

    I think it's just against them to take and keep pictures. Sign of vanity.

    Amara Humphry Oakes maybe, I was watching a show called the Amish mafia an one of the people on the show freaked out when someone tried to take a picture of an Amish lady

    I just got done watching Breaking Amish, and one of the girls (a Mennonite) was adopted; her adoptive parents sent pictures of her to her birth parents. One of them also complained that her parents didn't have pictures of her as a kid, so she didn't know what she looked like and mentioned that it was because of vanity. From what I know, though, it just depends on what their bishop says is okay and not. Some drink, some can't, etc.

    Amara Humphry Oakes oh! Okay that makes sense. Thanks! I Kind of wish there was more information out there about Amish culture. It seems interesting

    Yeah it is! My mom and grandma have read novels centered on young Amish women and they really liked them. I'm thinking about reading them too. Definitely going to check out Amish mafia
