Here We Go Again
A sad moment here. 😦
I’m not sure if it was a domestic disturbance call or a search for someone violating their parole restrictions but yes, a shame.
officers look talks a lot 🙂
I like this shot. It’s sort of the start of a story where we don’t know the ending or even the next scene.
This was an unfolding scene that I literally shot on a drive-by; hence the dashboard reflection in the windshield that I refuse to edit out. This picture has an almost sweeping cinematic quality that I never intended but like anyway.
Many years ago, there was a very controversial Hollywood film about the LAPD contending with inner city gang life in either South Central LA or Compton — I can’t remember which. The movie was called Colors, starred Robert Duvall and Sean Penn, and was directed by Dennis Hopper. This shot reminds me of the cinematography of that flick.
I agree on not editing out the reflection. It would be too much work for just a tiny change in the looks. Besides, the reflections isn’t bothering or ruining the photo.
What I like most in this shot is the light and reflection.
Me too. The dash glare on my windshield, and the perspective causing an almost look up their nostrils impression, inadvertently created aesthetics that conveys a sense of watching the scene unfold from a hiding spot. Behold, the power has arrived. A chill goes up and down the spine.
To think that I prefer to walk to get my street shots. I never expected to come upon this moment while driving.
Your perspective puts you right in the action, great shot and feeling, full of tension!
