Always Beware....

So...to continue my week of fog photo's here's my police story..

I was sitting in my car off the side of the road and I was taking photos of this orchard, when I went to put my camera away I noticed a man in my mirror...I try to always pay attention to things around me since I go out shooting by myself most times..so imagine my surprise when this police officer walks up to my car and he's parked right behind me... and I didnt even see him pull up!

 

So, he says "hey what's up"? Are you taking photos? Are you doing an inspection? What are you doing here?

 

Well.. mind you I'm just parked off the road by an orchard... I'm not in the orchard.. just off the road...so as I try to tell him.. that I'm just taking photos of the orchards in the fog because they look so amazing...he just looks at me like I'm a bit touched...and he said "Oh are you taking a class or something" and I said no.. I just love photography..have you ever heard of Flickr?

So, he says okay fine.. can I see your id...so after he comes back from checking my id....woo! Good thing I dont have any outstanding tickets! Just kidding-I'm not really the Rebel type-he tells me his sister is into photography and have a nice day....

 

Truth be told it's actually the 2nd time a police officer has pulled over and asked me what I was doing... the last time was on Christmas in the Buttes and I was trying out my camera and he said he was worried I was broken down..

 

But Im glad they are checking out suspicious people and keeping my town safe...especially since I didnt even see him drive up behind me...
