Hi guys here’s a quick post from my South American travels. This humorous photograph was taken on a public bus in Argentina.
Tongue tucked into the corner of my mouth and pulse racing I tiptoed to within two feet of my snoozing uniformed co-passengers. I had time to click over the shutter just once before the policeman stirred, opening his eyes directly at me. Biting my lip I feigned conversation with a bemused French tourist seated opposite. Fortunately my subject had not truly woken and I returned to my seat with a nervous grin. Catching cops snoozing in South America is fairly commonplace, but photographing them mid-siesta could potentially be a dicey proposition because it is illegal in some countries. And of course it may cost you a bit of baksheesh to keep you out of trouble.
Cheers for reading and expect South American photo postings to start rolling in thick and fast, I have a raft of great shots to put up!
