PLAIN PEOPLE AT THE AMTRAK DEPOT, LA PLATA, MO., NOVEMBER 19, 2008
Sigma 17-70 at 40mm
The people in these and the following four photographs are either Amish or Mennonite, a later offshoot. While, I am told, it is not possible to determine for sure what denomination a Plain Person belongs to, Mennonites do use a bit more blue in their dress than the Amish normally do. These unfailingly polite people do not believe in pushing their way to the front of lines waiting to board trains, but always wait until they are the last.
