Wonderful photo. I love how the policemen are walking in the different direction from other people, and how you’ve preserved the blue.
Thank you, the blue treatment was Mara’s idea and I agree it worked well and yes they did kind of cut a swathe through the people walking along the street.
superb !! Such sexy swagger 😉 😛
I’m sure those Police men would love that comment!!
feel free to pass it on 😉
Next time I see them 😉
Best.asses.ever. Thank you for making my silly suggestion look brilliant in this photo.
Thank you and it was a great idea, we should collaborate more!
I’d want that very much!
Then it will be so.
So the next time?
Oh yes, and the time after that, and…
Sounds fun 😉
Fun and a whole lot more…
Hm, I wish I were there then 😉
I am sure that you will be.
When I quickly glanced at the blue jackets, I read it as ‘Polite’ Police 😉
And my post was a little less than polite…
I first thought it was “Polite Police” as well.
I wandered the streets of Washington, DC, yesterday and noticed that the security level must have been heightened, as there were tons of regular duty officers, Secret Service, Park Police and other uniformed security personnel out in force — along with automatic weapons at the ready. That’s a sight we *never* saw prior to 9/11.
Sounds a bit like London where the Police carry weapons that look like something out of a Terminator movie, Brussel is not too bad, my shot is about as far as it goes unless the US President is in town of course and then we have APCs and water cannon on the streets…
Bedankt voor de politiezel! Loved it!
Thought you might like this one 😉
I thought it was polite police too lol. Striking photo! Love the blue. What was the event?
As far as I could see the extra Police were there in case the people queueing to get into Primark turned nasty…..
wow police for Primark? What has this world come to
I can think of better ways of spending an afternoon!
hah true. Will you be joining me in Eclectic Corner #3, possibly on why not to indulge in a revolution, oh no i mean resolution lol..haha…I think you don’t indulge but a different stance is always very welcomed x
Watch this space. I’ve been busy taling action so no need for further resolution…watch this space 🙂
