    It puzzles me, every time a “surveillance” photo is posted, it looks like a “first hand UFO, guaranteed authentic” documentation of the event or “criminal”. If it were a family member, my friend or what, I can’t identify the individual in the photo you posted.
    Get better equipment, or is the “blur job” on purpose.
