As our society, culture and technology grow more complex, ironically so does our fascination with the Amish, whose deliberately simple lives and avoidance of modern conveniences speak of an unhurried, peaceful existence. Descendants of the followers of Swiss Anabaptist Jakob Ammann, they immigrated to Pennsylvania from Europe in the early 18th century and set up communities that spread to New York, Ohio and Indiana, and they still live largely separated from the rest of the world.
Hi! I'm Marisa. I'm a photography major, and i'll admit to not being an expert, but what i do know is that i want to learn more, and I am certain that this is what i want to do for the rest of my life.
I love traveling any chance i get! I've covered a lot of Asia and Australia, and I am fortunate enough to have immediate family live in Singapore (no i'm not asian, and singapore is its own country its not located in china) So i get to visit there once a year every summer while my family lives there.
I'm going to try and post more of my own pictures here and there, i've recently been into film, so it takes me longer to get it into a digital format rather than just uploading it from my memory card :)
If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to post!
This is my place to post my thoughts, photos, interesting posts, and really anything i find particularly humorous.
