False Alarm

Strange to see the Bomb Squad van parked by the Four Moors...
...and a helicopter of the “Guardia di Finanza” hovering nearby.

We have a lot of those "false alarms," too. Must be good practice.

Someone must have called in a bomb threat?

Good to see that you have the proper response teams in place!

I like that helicopter photo - and the blue sky!

James said...

Hi Poet! I'm glad to see these pictures instead of smoldering ruins. I wonder why they thought there was a bomb?

Leif Hagen said...

Glad it was a false alarm! Phew! Happy Monday to you, VP!

Dina said...

Oh yeah, that looks familiar...
Glad yours was a false alarm.
So you have Finance Police?

Kaori said...

Wonder what triggered all that???

Sometimes the title is sooooooo important! I read a book one time called, "Now All We Need Is A Title." This thought reminded me of it. It's about famous books and movies and how the titles were created or changed by the author or publisher. I don't remember what "Jaws" was originally called, but it certainly wouldn't have sold as many copies! Anyway, "False Alarm" says a lot!

Also, the monument does have a piracy connection - right?

Seeing these would have me running away from the scene as far as possible. I might not even stop for photos! You are a very brave man. Glad it was a false alarm! And great captures!

Good to know someone is out there keeping everything under control. :)

Better to be safe than sorry! A couple of schools around here had bomb threats last week. Maybe some students trying to get out of taking a test!

VP said...

@ tapirgal - You are right, I liked the picture and the title. Probably the van was just parked there, Police Headquarters is not far.
Not much activity around and nothing on local papers, so it was just a nice photo op.

What excitement!

Once we had the bomb squad come to my street! The reason being was in the basement of a home, while emptying the junk of decades because the home was being sold, a WWII live grenade was found in the basement! A mystery. How or why? Imagine all those years with a live grenade? It was in the news.

I'm sure if something had been up it would have been at that magnificent airport...

I like this helicopter - it looks a little bit like from a fairytale:).
BTW: I see you have a beautiful weather! So nice...:)

VP, my link is fixed, thanks for telling me!

A bit different from the Swedish police helicopters. And it's nice to see a blue sky!

Andreea said...

If even the Four Moors can't be trusted we're living in world gone mad :)

JM said...

And, once again, you were there! :-)))

A little excitement? Or just the normal run of the mill? Pretty though, in either case.

We used to have bomb scares all the time.
