While I am on the topic of crime scenes, how do you get an interesting photo from a crime that has happened well after you arrive at the scene? When I pulled up to the bank robbery at Washington Mutual you always hope for police officers with their AR-15 rifles at the ready (we love the scanner call for “permission to deploy the long rifle”, it makes us smile).
Unfortunately the robbery attempt was long over and all I have is the investigation to photograph. While I was taking a picture of a crime scene technician fingerprinting the front door of the bank a police officer told me he knew which picture I was going to run, another “sign” shot, a picture with the bank’s name.
Guilty as charged!
