A policemans lot, a photo by Davidap2009 on Flickr.

I was writing an update to me gear page and looking at some shots I took with my FM2. This is one of my favs. I thought I’d share with you.

This is a shot I took at a miners strike demo in London back in the eighties. Policemen and women forming a corden before the march arrives .I love the way he has his hand on the policewoman just like he is caught in an embarrassing moment.I shouted to get the policeman to turn his head and snapped the shot.
I used my Nikon FM2 and a 100mm E lens . Film was Ilford XP2. It’s a fun candid of a serious moment .
This is a trial scan from my new Epson V700. .

  1. What a great shot! Everything about it is brilliant – the pose, the expression. Thanks for the story behind it too. Those guys must have been nervous as hell
