Artist's Description

OK, that’s NOT really mean. In fact, most of the CHP and police officers who use horses and dogs consider their animals as “partners in crime” [prevention]. Hehehe! Immediately after the AMGEN race presentations, I started home thru Capitol Park, right across the sidewalk from where I was shooting. These three riding officers were talking to a trio of people and none of them looked happy about it. In fact, they ALL looked rather annoyed. I generally tend to avoid cops who look annoyed. Something seems to indicate giving them a wide berth is prudent.

But I was still full of caffeine and I felt their discomfiture was aimed directly at the other trio so I walked back a good distance from the horses (and their riders) to snap off three quick shots using the D80’s full automatic action setting. As expected, as soon as they saw me, I got their attention and. seeing the camera, the two not still engaging the probably tourists, graced me with smiles for the camera. :-D When they turned back to the other civilians, they still had their smiles on so I doubt they still felt as peeved as they did before smiling.

Did I stop and go back to make them all feel happier in the cold wind and rain? Or did I just want to take a shot for the Horse and Rider Group in Red Bubble? If I told you which, would you believe me? ;-)
