It was a crisp October evening, just after sunset. I could see that everything was completely under control. The bicycle police officer was peddling his beat on the levee beside the Bowman Field parking lot in Williamsport, PA, USA.
I later learned that this is Patrolman McGee of the Williamsport City Police Department. His wife recognized his profile in this photograph. My next door neighbor let me know the whole story behind this picture. Her son just happens to be engaged to Officer McGee’s niece. I had no idea about any of this until a year after the shot was taken. I guess the City of Williamsport is really just a small town after all.
This image was captured handheld on October 30th, 2007, with a Canon EOS 10D camera through a Canon EF 35-350mm f/3.5-5.6L USM professional lens zoomed to 120mm, shot at 1/500th sec @ f/4.5.
