Pic(k) of the week 18: Shooting the police in Rome
Last Sunday an Italian gunman shot and seriously injured two policemen near the Prime Minister office in Rome.
Visiting Rome the day after the tragic events, I did expect the security to be heightened and was a bit cautious photographing these two policemen. The little X-E1 Fuji camera showed again how valuable it is. Very unlikely I would be able to shoot (no pun intended) these two gentlemen with my full frame DSLR...
