One of the jobs that I was out on, was to get a frame of Peter Blake, the father of the murderer Raoul Moat, who had given an interview to a couple of journalists from The People and the Mail On Sunday. I sat from 0630hrs until about 1810hrs before I got a sight of the target.

Unfortunately he left his residence via the only exit that I didn’t have covered from where I was sitting, so had to jump out of the car and hose him down on the street. Not particularly subtle, but it had to be done.

Lord’s Cricket Ground

Spent the day at Lord’s Cricket Ground, unfortunately I was not there to photograph the stunning cricket. England turned around being something like 104 for 7 to being 445 all out.

Sadly, as I said I wasn’t there for the cricket, but on a celebrity watch. I did eventually find my target, but only as we were losing the light. As I was also there as a punter there was no long lens, just a 70-200 with a 2x & a 1.4x extender, which really wasn’t ideal for the job. However I think the authorities might have questioned me more if I had the 400mm F2.8 in the Compton Stand!
