(Pickering, taken same say as previous post. After the cop encounter)
Monthly Archives: September 2010
So this picture has a bit of a story behind it. This was taken in the parking lot for the Pickering Power Plant (there is a little park you can walk around). So I was shooting this sticking out my car through the sun room, when I see a bright light behind me. Well guess what? It was the cops.
So the started asking my what I am taking pictures of and why, asked for my ID, and were suspicious that I was taking pictures of the ‘expensive boats’ I kept telling them it was just pictures of the grass. That confused them even more. Luck for me it was instant film so I told them if they want to wait 2 minutes I can show them what I took a picture of.
(2 min pass and film gets developed)
They are still confused as ever, the second cop comes back with my ID and says I am clear and everything is ok. The cop I was talking to tell me ‘ you’re not doing anything illegal but it’s just a bit suspicious and I’d recommend doing it else where.’ (he noticed I was from Scarborough and drove all this way for ‘that’ I told them I was taking pictures of the grass. He told me ‘I am sure there is plenty of grass in Scarborough’) or something along those lines.
This is now the 3rd time I been stopped or talked to by police while in a park. (2nd time while I was taking pictures)
At least I get a funny story from it.
Cops Love Me!
