Round the Bend !

Posted by Rick (Toronto, Canada) on 15 April 2018 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

I love seeing the Mennonites as they carry on with their old traditions. I find it quite calming in a world gone mad for technology. Just don't ask me to give up my cameras!

Yes, I, too, respect those who do not subscribe to current patterns of 'life' . .

Yes intriguing. How to choose the cut off point. Do they use electricity? I can see what looks like an indicator sticking out of the side.

@grouser: Those are just reflectors. There are Mennonites who adhere strictly to the old ways, and "modern" ones who own and operate businesses such as Jerrie's in Elora, where wonderful farming products are sold... old seed stock that has never been modified or "treated" with "Round Up" or other nasty chemicals. Cheers, mister g.

An excellent capture of the old ways. I agree though about cameras, computers, phones. . . . . ;-)
