#168-365 Law Enforcement

The whole reason I was in Brisbane was to get some shots of the Carved Jade "Peace Buddha" that is visiting Australia, and I will show a better shot of that later. I couldn't help myself so asked these Police Officers if they minded getting their photos taken (with the Buddha). They initially expressed reluctance, but I guess my look of regection was too much for the big guy second left, cause when he said "What's this for?" and I replied "Just wanted a shot of Peace Officers contemplating the Peace Buddha - You know the Big Boss of Peace - so to speak!" The young female constable, replied "I'm fine with that but not with the face showing so I jumped at the chance and got four of the five in attendance milling with the crowd. Nic bunch actually!

A fine job getting this shot. I've heard of the traveling Buddha and look forward to seeing more of it.

Hmmm... turning on the charm again, and he's rewarded with a shot of her shaply derriere. Wonder what you were contemplating when you focused on this shot Ron! I like the concept of the Peace Officers and Peace Buddah.
