I was walking back from taking the "Fenway Fanatics" photo on Yawkey Way, when I came across this scene of the police officers being prepped for the Red Sox Rally. This was one of those scenes that when I saw it I thought, "what an awesome photo this would make." Unfortunately, the photo did not come out anywhere near what I had in my mind. I would have been shooting it at a different angle and with the sun behind me instead of directly in front of me. Of course when I took this photo I was trying to attract as little attention to myself as possible. Normally, I would take about twenty pictures with various settings and angles trying to get just the right shot. However, with over 100 police officers only thirty feet away, I quickly snapped the photo and meandered on my way.
Hopefully, as I use the camera more I'll become better at getting those on-the-fly shots and having them look more like they do in my mind's eye.
