031: Police patrolling
It was on a cold but sunny day in March, when I visited The Hague. I walked around in the small center with a large number of historic building, like the Binnenhof, and the Canal District. Later that day, I continued my travel by tram to the famous beaches of Scheveningen. That day, it was rather quiet in the streets, it was a normal working day. I was able to take many pictures with my compact digital camera, there not many people that could suddenly appear in front of the camera lens. However, I was cautious enough not to draw too much attention. You’ll never know if there is a thief or a pickpocket that has chosen you as their next victim. Every time, when I had finished a short session of taking pictures, I put my camera back in my backpack. Like my routine in my city Belo Horizonte, and other Brazilian cities when I was visiting them. At the moment of this picture, I was quite assured that no one would rob me, because of the two police officers walking in front of me.
