Portraits 07

It was often mentioned during our trip that the crime rate in Batanes was very low. In fact, the police officers did not even carry firearms while on duty. After hearing this, I was curious to find out if this was true. I then asked our guide if we could visit a local police station to possibly take a few portraits.
