What a lovely shot. What was the occasion? I have never seen them dressed like this and I do understand that they are raised not to look directly at any man they don't know.

Its a Sunday afternoon at the river. I suspect they are dressed for church.
Do you see the man looking at me in the background out of focus?
I'm sure he was about to explain it to me if I stuck around another second.

No, I had not noticed him - I'm sure you were right and there were probably others - maybe behind you.

i usually sneak around when i take pics of the Mennonites. thats why most of mine are blurry. camera up fast shoot then down. and if they see me i don't shoot. but these are great.

This is with a 400mm lens from a boat going down the northern river. It looks like they are looking at me but I think they really are looking at a boat load of tourist and didn't notice me in the midst of them with a camera pointed their way.
