This is Life in Pinecraft during the month of February 2013. February is the busiest month of the Snow Bird season, which comes around every year for the last 75 years for the Plain People, Amish/Mennonite.
I love taking pictures of people as they are, in their setting. Most of my pictures are taken of the Amish when they winter or vacation in Sarasota Florida. There is a little section of Sarasota called Pinecraft which is loaded with Amish/Mennonites during the winter months. In the summer it turns into a Ghost Town with 85% of the houses empty.
My roots are Amish, born and raised in Holmes County Ohio.
