Barcelona, a photo a day

Monthly theme day: people on the street

During a recent manifestation against animal trials in labs… Very serious looking young riot policeman.
Oh yeah: it is totally illegal in Spain to take photos of policemen. Shame on me.

  2. They're tough looking… and the uniforms are different from what I'm used to.

  6. In the USA there are laws in some places to preserve the confidentiality of where police officials live, but I have never heard of banning photographs of police in the USA. I refrain from photographing police when traveling in some foreign countries, however.
