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.

Spring Trees On RT 81
So I am driving down interstate Route 81 heading for Syracuse. It's about 3:00 in the afternoon and the light has a nice quality to it. The trees are leafing out, but not all of the way yet. I like how they look. You are only allowed to stop on RT 81 in an emergency. I want to snap the trees. So I just hold the camera against the glass of the driver side window and use the rapid frame advance and let the camera take a couple dozen photos. I am not looking through the viewfinder. The camera is set on Aperture priority. It is a Nikon D300. I liked this particular frame.
