Hello if I am out walking or driving and shooting photos but come across an Amish or Mennonite what is the best way to communicate with them. I don't want them to think they need to be on guard because I have a camera.

Being this is the Missouri forum, I'm very surprised, none of the 100+ posters have mentioned this reality TV series, filmed near Columbia, MO http://channel.nationalgeographic.co...h-out-of-order

The program's host, Mose Gingerich was raised in an Amish community in Wisconsin, where he taught in an Amish school, before leaving the culture in 2002. At the time the show aired, he lived on a farm near Columbia, MO, which he operated as a "halfway house" helping ex-Amish youth/ runaways, many of them from distant states, find jobs, and adjust to mainstream culture, in an understanding way.

Default Amish or Mennonites in Boonville

Are the Amish still in Boonville, Missouri? We were always happy to see them, and they were always friendly. My friends own a farm out in their area and they said they thought the Amish school was now closed. I sure hope not.

I see Mennonites in KC once in a while.

The place I see them most are in Scheel's, I think they're there to go on the Ferris Wheel with their kids.

I've also seen them in a Starbucks in Liberty and in Ikea.

Often when I see them, one or more of the women are looking around self-consciously, as if they're a bit embarrassed at the people staring at them. The guys don't seem to care as much.

They would come to the house near Jefferson City when my wife had garage sales. They were big into kids' toys and books. They spoke Plattdeutsch or some such language amongst themselves. There were many out in Morgan County near Versailles.

These might help...or not...
