    The photo of the Amish family in the buggy is wonderful. I have similar photos that I have shot through my windshield. But I still feel dishonest about photographing Amish folks instead of Amish things. I have read many times Katie Toyer’s comments on photographing the Amish, but I still am not sure that it’s really the right thing to do.

      I think it’s a judgment call…the above photo of the buggy from the back…There is simply no way to identify the people. I’m not sure that even the people pictured would be able to tell its them from the angle this was shot. I didn’t take this photo, but I wouldn’t have posted it if I felt it crossed a line…but there’s no “right” answer in a situation like this, I think its an individual judgement call.
