Prequel to the Sequel

celebrating mardi gras with champaign police and not my friends

Posted in Editorial by brmeyer3 on 02/27/2009
On tuesday night i got the privilege to join Champaign Police on several bar checks through out the mardi gras night. Riding around on the Patty-Wagon was great and the cops were hilarious and never stopped cracking jokes. The night was really interesting, i got threatened a couple times and called an asshole quite a bit. I felt like a bit of a jerk, but its part of the job i guess. This was probably the toughest shooting conditions ive been in, shooting at night in terrible lighting. Auto focus was not working well that night.
A slideshow consisting of mine and Brennan’s, a fellow photog a the DI, can be viewed here.
