it would be more helpful if you put that gun away
The more and more time I spend on flickr, the more I realize how many of my old photos are worthless as more than vacation photos. This is one of the few that stood up to modern review of my trip to England a couple of years ago due to the fact that my composition was actually something I might use now (not just a straight ahead centered shot like I was so fond of back then).
This is a shot (pardon the pun) of two security London police in front of Parliament during a time it was closed. Despite holding national security in their hands, they found time to maintain a relatively friendly demeanor, even offering this young tourist directions.
I just had to bring this photo back to show all my friends back home that not all British police officers are unarmed as is a myth in the United States.
