Are you sure he isn't stopping for doughnuts??? Just kidding...one of the kids my one of my daughters went to school with would not get a snack while he was on shift just because of all the jokes that have been said and done about police/doughnuts.

i like the speed reflected in the picture.

regarding your query on my post, it is a scaffolding for undertaking some exterior renovation of the structure

OK, confess! What did you do? I mean, how did you create the feeling of motion...NOT why is the police car heading for your house.

Memphis MOJO said...

You have a lot of nerve to stop and take his photo when he's chasing you!

Nice blurring. Funny, I was talking to a guard the other day who used to be a cop. He was talking about how he came up here from California years ago with a little experience as a cop, and they need to hire cops badly, so his buddy, already on the force, took him to a doughnut shop to meet the guy who would be hiring him. True story (from me). I don't know if made up the doughnut part for effect or not :)

Nice shot. Is there a dounut sale somewhere?

Fancy photography, Mr Jacob! Nice! I think I know HOW it's done, but I have never tried it.

Interesting. I wonder how it would look if you fuzzed the car and left the surroundings in focus...

nopham said...

Would you use your Photoshop and turn those lights on? I can't heaqr.

as long as hes not following or chasing me. Hopefully, it was to just give a ticket or false alarm and not an accident.

I am used to seeing state troopers on the interstate, but I guess they work in the city too. I'm glad he wasn't coming after you!

Nice blurring effect on this one. I like to play with this kind of technique.
My oldest son is a police officer so whenever I see a police car, I think of him out there in a dangerous world, protecting and serving. I think of the scars on his arm from a bite by a woman he was saving from being beaten by her husband. And I think of the young man that he carried for miles in freezing weather to get him to an ambulance before he succumbed to the elements. So to all the officers out there, Thank you!

I like the way you treated the picture.
Like Brattcat I would have thought the other way around or is it on purpose..
The Ocala Police being slow to respond...?

Halcyon said...

I guess he got there fast! It looks that way anyway. :)

By the way, my husband had to get out and respond to an emergency call at 6 a.m. when it was -20 degrees. False alarm.
