Gimme a break

See my DNA... - or - View On Black


Copyright © Kipp Baker, 2004


Part of a photo-scavenger hunt hosted by the Fort Worth Camera Club, this image was one of twelve - shot to illustrate various concepts or phrases. This one was the phrase, "Gimme a break!"


On his way to fix a tire going flat on his motorcycle this patrolman allowed me to flag him down and listen to my explanation for the photo. He was also kind enough to give me 2 minutes. After a minute of quick setup and positioning, I got 2 shots on slide film with 10 seconds to spare - and no ticket.


Camera: Canon F-1n

Lens: 24mm 2.8

Film: Fujichrome 100

Scanned on Nikon Coolscan 9000
