This one begged to be in Black and White in my opinion

A few weeks ago I was driving through Penn Square in Lancaster, Pa, USA and there was a Mennonite Choir on one corner singing. By the time I found a parking space they had finished. I asked Matthew, a member of their church who was passing out invitations to visit their church when they would be back and gave him my number. He called yesterday to let me know they would be there today. A whole lot of singing, a little preaching and a really nice morning. Just got home and here are a few of my photos, maybe more to come.

    Is he barefooted???

  • Yes Ciana, he is. All the other men and kids had thoce substantial black shoes that the Mennonites wear and he had a pair too, I have another photo I’ll post with the shoes on. i have no idea when he took them off, my attention must have been elsewhere.
