Gr. I have a photography college class, and I have 5 fine art landscape pictures due tomorrow. So I went out to the public park to get some nice shots last night. I stopped at the lake. I was trying slow slow shutter speed to make the water foggy, so it had to be almost completely dark. So I got there at 4. Took about 3 pictures. Keep waiting for it to get darker. And I hear a rustling across the lake. So I focus my camera, thinking maybe I could get a good shot of a deer. And a huge German Shepherd bounds out of the brush dragging a leash. Okay. I ignore it cause it's pretty far away. But it hears my camera I guess and decides to try and swim across the lake to me. It gets half way then turns back, so it runs all the way around the side of the lake. I can see it coming at full speed to get me, so I dash for the car. My extra batteries in my pocket went flying out and hit the pavement. I barely made it in and closed the door by the time it got there. I duck down to hope it doesn't see me and goes away. But after it circled the car a few times, it stops me. Jumps up onto my car. And scratches all over it. While it barks and attacks my closed window, and smears slober all over everything. A guy comes out of the tree, and calls it once. It doesn't listen, but after a few minutes it gets bored and goes away. The guy just leans against his car and smokes. I wait until the dog seems distracted, and I slowly creep out of my car, spot my batteries, and dash back into the car all while it spots me again and chased once more. Okay so I can't get out without being attacked. Maybe they will leave in a minute. So I sit there.... For an hour. While he smokes and lets his dog circle around. Finally it's too dark to take pictures and I leave. I was so ticked. First dogs running loose is illegal in the park. Second, I wouldn't mind. If the dog was controlled, or once he saw it chasing me he called it off and tied it up. But the dumb guy didn't even care. He just sat and watched, while I was doing something and his dog attacked me into the car. Excuse me. Rude. He seen me run to the car, and scream at the dog because it was trying to get into the car as I closed the door. I was there first, and peoples dumb dogs can't chase off other people who are enjoying the public park. I should of called the cops. I am a young 100 pound girl. And this huge dog about gave me a heart attack. I though I was a goner for sure. When some random german shepherd runs at you full speed, and attacks your car. Not to mention my car is all scratched up. I still didn't get my pictures. And now it's raining. What a jerk.
