    Oakland PD Bikers that is!

    orig.

    My boy and I were at the car wash this morning and saw these two pull in to get their bikes washed. I was taking some pics of the bikes in process considering the unusual opportunity, and the Sargent asked my boy if he wanted to have his picture taken on his bike? How could we pass that up? As I was getting the camera setup, Sgt is telling Marco "Now, put your left hand here, and you have to do the Thumbs-Up with this hand...like this."

    Nikon D200, 18-200 VR @ 20mm, f/6.3, 1/160, ISO 100.

    too cute!
     
  8. Thanks for sharing this. I shoot biker cops a lot and always make sure they get a copy of the photo printed out in a $1 store frame. If they make it into the magazine I drop them off enough braggin copies. Works very well for me. they never get enough good credit for donating their time for events. Drew at CBN.
     
  9. Nice shot! I wish our cop were on bikes.
