Two Portland Police Bureau officers outside Lincoln High on Southwest 14th Ave in southwest Portland. One of them evidentially needed some help with his car. :)

  • As in France, some police cars are very old with too many miles :-)

  • very nice street candid.. it’s good you were able to pull this off without them noticing you.. :D

  • by framing this with the congested traffic in the background you’ve really got across the tension of getting the car started. nice one.
