OOPS! O.P.P./ Ruby Tuesday

Oh-Oh! What are those flashing red and blue lights?


POLICE!
But never fear! The police officer turned his lights on so I could take a photo of the them flashing  TRUE!


My husband and I stopped at a coffee shop on a provincial highway patrolled regularly by the Ontario Provincial Police, a.k.a. O.P.P. Two officers were inside drinking, well, coffee. Outside, I was taking photos of their patrol cars. Unbeknownst by me, they were watching. OOPS!

When I went inside to get some coffee, they asked me if I wanted a photo of flashing lights.  Wasn't that thoughtful?

They don't sound like any cops I know! Flashing lights is never a good sign.

Seriously, though, I have second thoughts about taking some photos these days...I mean, someone might think you're a terrorist and shoot the camera right out of your hands!

Kudos to EG's nice coppers!

How fun is that! I have lots of pictures of cops and cop cars since our son is one. (a cop not a car)

That was nice of them. I had a weird dream last night about the police. They were driving an unmarked Volkswagen Beetle. Suddenly, I realized that I was, um... not appropriately attired. Then I woke up. What do you suppose it means?

Cezar and Léia said...

I hope you didn't have problems that day with those gentle guys! LOL

That's a change from the vast and almost empty Canadian lanscapes!

Leora said...

Nice! And friendly. Reminds me of the soldiers who let my daughter sit in their jeep with them so I could photograph her with them. They see you consider them important, so they are happy to play it up.

Patti said...

Those are nice officers..they liked the attention I'm sure.

I know what Jacob means..sometimes I'm about to take out my camera in public but then think better of it.

Ralph said...

See, these guys are working - and must have a soft spot for someone who is looking for Ruby Tuesday subjects. That blue and RED lightbar is perfect for today, the OPP a fine subject!

nice A said...

Hahaha! I did the same when I wanted to take photos of some exotic foods. Most of the shops or vendors don't want photos taken what more for a police car. You're so smart and you got a nice entry.

Jama said...

That's so nice of them to do that!

Becky and Gary said...

How nice of them. I don't think we have any cops like that around here, at least I don't want to find out. LOL

Unbelievable scenario! And the Ontario police have quite a decorative emblem on the side of the car!

Anil P said...

That was mighty kind of them, really. Nice to know cops can humour as well.
