Curiosity. I saw this family coming down the road towards me; I didn't want to photograph them head-on and seem rude since they don't like to be photographed, so I waited until they passed by. But this adorable little boy just couldn't keep from peeking.

Hello! On the other hand… I was so surprised when he called out to me to catch my attention! Normally they don't like to be photographed. I was shooting some corn fields and he called out to me! Then he turned into a total ham and waved. What fun!

      Love #1, with the beautiful field of corn behind it! The second one is very surprising, never seen the Amish acknowledge a photo!

      Yeah.. The guy in the second shot looks friendly, and the girl just looks shy. I'd love to have this chance to catch this shot. Well capture.
