Photographer's Note

I was having breakfast with some friends at Jacaranda Posada last Friday when we noticed about 30 officers from local traffic police "AMET" that where also having their breakfast time. In my country, you rarely shoot pictures to military people as they really hate cameras, so altough interesting as a group of similary-color-dressed people, we didn't take out the camera for a second.

We noticed that there were two USA police officers, dressed with New Jersey's road patrol uniforms, and we concluded that the whole group was in the middle of some kind of training.

After some time chatting and making jokes, the "gringos" set departure time, and the engines of many Harley-Davidson motorcycles roared in the morning typical silence. As we saw them leaving the place, I knew we needed to take the risk of making some photos. So, we got into the car and reached the whole group a few miles away. I shooted some pictures behind them as we were passing by their side, but the best shot was this one, taken very close to the formation, and with one of the New Jersey officers leading the bunch. I had half my body outside the fast-moving car when I shooted this series (with my friend's Canon Powershot S2 with auto settings).

For me, this is my best shot in such difficult conditions. Hope you like it too :)

Technical: Minor levels adjustment made to the sky, as the auto setting took light measurement from the officers and burned out the sky a little.
