Monday is Wash Day in the Amish Country - Lancaster County, Pennsylvania

On our way back from the Philadelphia area we took a short detour through the Pennsylvania Dutch area southeast of Lancaster. The main roads have been almost ruined by tackiness and touristy exploitation in recent years, but we took a few of the back roads around Strasburgh, Paradise and Bird in Hand and I got these shots mostly from the car window. The Amish understandably don't like to be photographed close -up, so I tried to keep a respectful distance while still capturing the unique atmosphere of this rich farm country.
