Flipped off

Although they seem ubiquitious, it's not everyday youre friendly neighborhood lensman(woman) gets to capture scenes from a perpwalk.

Do this job long enough though and the number of scenes could fill up a nice little tape reel. The characters on this reel range from the famous to the infamous. From those you feel sorry for, to those who couldn't even garner a sliver of sympathy from most people.

I've taken part in many backpedaling contests as have others...(Lenslinger and here)

Most are innocuous and easily forgettable. For me that boring streak ended yesterday. I was waiting in the courthouse for the alleged getaway driver in murder to make an appearance in court.

After several false starts with other inmates getting off of the elevator my subject appears through the door. This is what I get. --------->

Well that and being told several colorful suggestions.  It was the most interesting and entertaining 15 seconds of video I've shot in this week.

Getting flipped off and called a bastard by someone in acounty lockup jumpsuit is almost a badge of honor. Wear it proudly!

I love getting flipped off! The way I see it...pissing off criminals is a job perk most of us overlook. Perp walks and people being arrested...i love 'em.
