The words police and photo don't normally have a positive context together but I thought this was worth sharing. It's a good reminder to myself to keep things in perspective with the coming seasonal shopping madness.

I agree. I guess there are a few.

Nothing like paying it forward.

Yes.. very good on the officer (and the store for giving the discount). Only 25 years old too.. showing great maturity!

Great story and proof you don't need high priced gear and years of experience to capture a timeless image.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

What a fantastic human being! He's one of the true unsung heroes who had no idea that his actions would ever be noted much less recorded. Hats off also to the lady who took the photo and posted it.

Yeah, the officer's heart was in the right place. Too bad the guy was again shoeless on the street the next day. It is just his pan handling con to get more money or nice things he can barter or sell.

I heard that on the news one day and admired officer DePrimo for what he did (I still do). The next day I heard there was a twist to the story. If I recall correctly the "bum" is not homeless. He has a home. Keyan is right, this "bum" was out on the street, shoeless, again.

It's a great photo because of how it shows the humanity / connection between two people for no other reason than one has the opportunity to help the other. Whatever the occupation.

It's the bell curve like anything else. Not to lessen the specialness of what this officer did, but there's good and bad in everything.

Bottom line - f/8 and be there with a camera, no?
