When I saw “graffiti” in the title of the email, I imagined spray-painted epithets, possibly the work of ne’er-do-wells with an axe to grind against the Amish.
By the looks of things, the etchings in these photos from contributor ShipshewanaIndiana appear to be the work of young boys, perhaps killing time after a church service.
I can’t quite make everything out in the images–in the first one we clearly have a “Joseph” and a “Samuel”, but not sure who’s/what’s in the middle.
In the second photo, I can’t tell what’s on top, but looks like a baseball/softball player did the one on the bottom.
Just a little slice of life from the Amish community of Adams County, Indiana.
