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. 

2013 Pic(k) of the week 18: Rome Police in action...

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...
