Neighborhood Watch

Chilling out on the porch, kids from the Harrisburg neighborhood bide their time after police arrived on Fenwick Street to investigate a noise complaint over a street basketball game. That same day, officers also responded to reports of domestic disputes and a fistfight on Fenwick, which runs for nearly four miles (six kilometers) through some of Augusta's poorer neighborhoods.

Special Equipment or Comments: I had shot the kids playing basketball and felt I had what I wanted. It was starting to rain harder and the kids were about done with their game, so I was almost in my car when six police cars arrived. I went back to shoot their interaction with the kids, and got this shot of the other kids watching from the porch.
