I cannot tell you how many times I have shown up at events with a couple of cameras around my neck, a gadget bag full of odds & ends and a lighting kit and have been asked that question. If it happened once every few years, that would be one thing. But it happens a LOT. It's like getting pulled over by the police and he's standing there with uniform, gun, flashing lights and asking him "Are you a cop?" I would love to come back with a witty reply, such as "No, I am Jesus. Don't you recognize my beard?" However, I cannot be that rude.

Day 280: The Conversation (A Test)
Well, you have no choice but to go. To leave. Immediately!
To what avail? For what purpose? Am I to risk my life and limb for ALL of that, in weather like this? I don't think so.
Weather! ... WEATHER!! ... Is that your only concern? WEATHER?
Now listen here ....
No! YOU listen here! You are going. End of discussion.
No buts. The World is out there, not in here. There is music. There is Love. There is mystery and intrigue.
Well, I'm not driving all over God's creation in the condition this World is in. Not in this weather anyway. Don't you realize men are trapped in mines out there? Deep underground. I don't want any of that.
Don't worry about it. Sometimes they get out. They escape.
Yea? How about the gang wars? The politics? The polar ice caps? I could go on and on.
