The Law Enforcers
Cities full of pistols require many revolvers for the police to overcome criminals. Cities full of motor-vehicles need many police cars to patrol the town. And cities full of cyclists, like Dublin, require many Garda Bicycles...
It is always nice to spot the Gardai on their bikes. When law enforcement is done at the level of your eyes (rather than on horseback or from within a moving metal cage) it feels more humane, more safe. No wonder the Irish officers are amongst the nicest in the world. They always smile!
I took this picture on 28 April 2012 in Grafton Street, next to Stephen's Green Shopping Centre.
