IT MUST BE NICE TO BE A POLICEMAN ON THE WATER DUTY. THESE TWO LUCKY POLICE OFFICERS ARE PART OF SOLANO COUNTY SHERRIFF’S DEPARTMENT IN NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. ALONG WITH THE MAIN BOAT, THESE TWO GET TO TRAVEL THE SLOUGHS AND BAYS LOOKING FOR LAW BREAKING BOATERS. I DON’T OFTEN SEE THEM HERE IN MONTEZUMA SLOUGH, BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN THEY EVEN HAUL SOMEONE OFF TO JAIL. I COULDN’T RESIST GETTING A SHOT OF “TWO PLAYING COPS”. NOT THAT THEY WERE PLAYING COPS, BUT THAT THEY WERE TWO COPS PLAYING. I THINK THEY WERE CUTTING UP THE WATER JUST TO MAKE WAVES FOR EACH OTHER TO JUMP OVER. THE CAMERA I USED TO GET THIS IMAGE WAS A CANON EOS DIGITAL REBEL D-300 WITH A 75-300 TELEPHOTO LENS. I LIKE THE FACT THAT DIGITAL CAMERAS CAN OUT LAST FILM CAMERAS, SINCE I DON’T HAVE TO CHANGE FILM EVERY 24-36 SHOTS. I SHOT OVER 30 SHOTS OF THESE TWO COPS, JUST TO GET 6 OR 7 THAT I COULD USE. I LIKE BEING ABLE TO DELETE WHAT I DON’T WANT TO KEEP.

    They do look like they are having a great time!
    Cool shot!

  • THANKS E.R. I WONDER WHAT THEIR SUPPERVISOR THOUGHT ABOUT THEM DOING THIS, HE WAS PROBABLY IN THE BIG BOAT, WHICH HAD ALREADY GONE PASSED ME. IN FACT, THOSE ARE HIS BUBBLES IN THE LOWER PORTION OF THE PHOTO. BOB
