December City Daily Photo Theme Day: action shot

Granted, this isn't exactly very much of an action shot... I missed lots of them, I was never quick enough for police cars whizzing by, that kind of thing. So here is police. In front of the palace, mounted police reminding people that you can't just park where you like! Click here to view thumbnails for all participants I am away for a few days, VDP continues on autopilot, see you soon!

Bon, pour ce thème du mois de décembre, j'ai un peu démérité. J'ai raté plein de scènes d'action, genre les voitures de police avec les pneus qui crissent, je n'ai jamais dégainé l'appareil à temps... Alors voici devant le château, la police montée qui rappelle opportunément aux gens qu'on ne se gare pas où on veut... Je m'absente quelques jours, VDP continue en pilote automatique, à très bientôt !

Parking tickets are a revenue generator, and everyone needs money these days.

Looks like action to me.

Great shot Ciel, love to see the mounted police doing their thing, what a spectacular backdrop, the palace is unbelievably gorgeous. Enjoy your travels.

That's a cute little Audi. That photo really shows the magnitude of the palace!

Everything looks more elegant in France, including the mounted police.

tu aurais du prendre l'action quand il met l'amende ;) c'est sympa la police montée. Passe une bonne fin de semaine

Effectivement, je ne pense pas que la police soit un bon exemple pour l'action, mais pour le shot, pourquoi pas.

Il est rigolo le canasson il se demande comment il va faire pour ne pas s'emmêler les jambes... Tu te rends compte ? Si en plus on en avait 4, nous ? Je ne sais si on arriverait à prendre des photos....

I guess slow action is also action.
Seeing a horse always makes me happy.

brattcat said...

hoping all is well, ciel, and that there are no parking tickets in your immediate future.

Tanya said...

well i think you did good anyway, i'd rather see them on a horse than a boring old car!

SRQ said...

What an unexpected action shot! Enjoy your respite.

Encore un bon moyen de se faire des sous...

Anyone who would think that it is OK to park between a crosswalk and the adjacent intersection must think they are a member of royalty.

We could nee a squadron of these but they would need sabres to get the job done.

Enjoy your time away.

I like this a lot. Probably because I'm not getting a ticket! Being a police person is a stress-filled job and not one I would want. I remember about 25 years ago, a city cop sometimes stopped in my office for a cup of coffee...then he'd hang out for an hour or so until his shift was over. He didn't want to experience any more stress that particular day!

Still not back fully...had to get another computer and setting it up is a real process! Ugh.

Even if it's "slow" action, I like it!

Buck said...

I had to look twice - no horses in the city here except for special occasions. I like this photo!

Babzy said...
