TWO AMISH BOYS 1972
I stumbled across these two boys at an Amish/Mennonite Relief Sale in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I rounded a corner of a wagon loaded with hay bales and there they were.
I was hand-holding my 2 1/4 format camera which was mounted on a pistol grip. I don't think they were ever aware of me as I quickly raised my camera and made this exposure on the fly.
This was a fine example of what is often referred to as the "decisive moment." It was not posed and that is what makes it so memorable.
