Title sounds dark and ominous huh? This is kind of a long story, but good none the less. I was out taking some night photos at Bunker Lake Park last night. It is pitch black (9:45pm). I walk into a field to get away from any park/street lights and start setting up my equipment. I get a few shots off and I hear movement. My alert level goes to a red and I prepare my flash light and firearm (uncovering the gun from under my jacket). As the movement gets closer I can tell that it is a man, my eyes have adjusted and I can see that he is about 100ft out when he walks off of the road and starts walking toward me in the field. I quick take out my phone start recording the audio and toss it back into my pocket. He turns on a flashlight and asks me what I am doing. I tell him that I am taking photos. "at night? In the dark?" I tell him yeah and then he says something that kind of took me by surprise. He tells me "I'm locked and loaded, you scared the **** out of me!" I responded with a "umm ok?" I didn't want to talk guns with this guy, I just wanted him to leave. He asks me my name and I tell him its irreverent. "I don't know you, why would I give you my name?" I asked him what his was and he said Mike. I told him mine and said have a nice night. He walked to his SUV which was parked a few spaces away from my car. I watched him as he scoped my car out with his light. Looking at my license plate and inside the car. Then he drove off. I am positive he never saw my weapon. Just a strange encounter I thought I would share. Try not walking up to random people in the dark. How is it that I.. scared you? You walked right up to me? lol END RANT.
