    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

      Does this remind you of a time out in BBNP.

      Yeah - only that was REAL. This was just theater.
