This image was made while visiting one of the first Amish and Mennonite relief sales which was held near Waynesboro, VA. during the fall of 1972.I still vividly remember making this image and it was totally spontaneous. Some photographers might refer to it as a "grab shot." Of course we all know that it is not a shot, but a photograph. I detest the word shot. It makes me think of guns, not a camera. Ditto for "take." We used to make photographs, but it's funny how some of these meaningless words become common language.
Anyhow, these two young boys just glanced up at me and I made the exposure. I have always liked this one, and it was one of my first images in the Amish/Mennonite portfolio.
