Off topic, but i just wanted to show this to you guys. I was out for a walk the other day, enjoying the weather and taking some pictures. Nothing special, just wasting time and stuff, when i saw a mediflight helicopter landing not far away... I drove to the place and it turned out to be a transport from our hospital to one of the places in Oklahoma City.
Anyway, there was a cop blocking the street so the helicopter could land safely and i thought that a policecar with a flashing lightbar and a helicopter in the background would make a good picture... Finally the helicopter took off, that's when i took this action pic:
Well, yes, it's blurry and not perfect, but i still like it (and so did the Police Officer who i presented a framed 8x10 printout a day later ).
Just thought you guys might enjoy the pic ;)

Sad to say I see this way to much these days.

Great Photo. A frozen moment in time.
It all came together in that pic.

Well taken .. and in fact even if not pin sharp it has great ''atmosphere''.
Only downside would be the reason for the flight - here's hoping someone gets help and recovers.

That's a nice action shot. I need to take some from my work on the seagoing tugs, but everytime there's action I'm involved.
That's an awesome picture!

That's a sellable pic, kante. You might call the Oklahoman or the Weatherford paper (do you have one?).......
Heck, try Reader's Digest!
Hm, that might be an idea. Maybe i'll get $15 out of it. Heck, that's a box of ammunition!
That Canon 300D sure takes a good photo.

Thanks for posting...saved to the hard drive...great picture!
I like it. I think I'll make it my backround on my laptop in the cruiser.

Great shot. I like it.
