The Amish

I visited Lancaster Pennsylvania and saw some amazing sites. It was just after sunrise; this is an image of an Amish man driving a team of horses down the road. I shot this from my car window at about 40 miles per hour with a telephoto lens as I passed by. His gaze haunts me. As is so often the case, I see people I want to photograph but somehow I do not think they would appreciate me asking.

Do you think it is alright to ask someone if you can photograph them, or is it just rude?
