G...is for Girls

These two Mennonite women are enjoying a slower pace of life in Holmes County. Riding a bicycle allows more time to look around and enjoy the beauty of their surroundings.More Midweek Blues at The Dusty Cellar. More ABC on the sidebar.

Peaceful, to be sure. Wonder what they're looking at. Great shot!

I've never seen bicycles with saddlebags like that (if that's what they are). Normally I see baskets. Love both shades of blue they're wearing.

'Going slow' -- such a good motto for getting the most out of life.

Neat photo. I often wonder what the Amish think about the rest of us.

Nice snap. And it is also a very good exercise besides being a green mode of transport. Plus you enjoy a lot.

They clothes look strange! If there were't the car in the photo it could be ages ago:)
Lovely shot!

Wonderful photo - lovely choice for G.

They do look like they are enjoying themselves.
The blue is a different color than one usually sees.
How healthy they must be effortlessly pedaling uphill and it looks like carrying on a conversation.
I'd be pooped!

This is a really cool shot. We have a couple of Mennonite churches here in Phoenix but we never see them as you do. Plus who could ride a bike here when it's 110!

jay said...

Well, that is true - slower pace = more time to see things properly. Provides a good amount of exercise too, judging by the slope on that road!

Great shot!

Great capture. I didn't realize Mennonite women were allowed to ride bicycles. They look like they're enjoying the scenery. We should all slow down a little and look at the world more closely, I think.

I stumbled across this blog this evening while just randomly surfing.

A nice photo.

I grew up in Ohio, Massillon to be specific and lived in Wayne county for a few years before I left in the late 70's. I did (and still do) a lot of bicycling and that image really brings back memories.

I haven't seen this before. I do enjoy all of your Ohio painted barns. They are wonderful....as are your photos of them. Thanks for sharing.

'tis a much simpler way of life, too. One envies them sometimes.
