Hahah, yes plus 2 hours driving there, 3 hours back, an hour pissing around with other journalists getting in the way!! You get days like that sometimes.
Today was good though, I actually spent about 2 hours shooting which was nice!

You obviously managed to muscle your way into a good position as he looks like he's sitting just for you, nice work Sam.

At least he turned up !! I went to photograph him at a book signing and he failed to show - lost all respect for the guy after the way that he took the thirty pieces of silver and left Argyle. Good pic tho' Sam Smile
