Photographer Steve Smith waited at dawn to catch the jogger in the middle of his bizarre morning ritual.

He ran past the block three times in one week before he was snapped defecating on the pathway. 

‘I started sitting out there in the dark and waiting, and I decided I was going to get a photo of this guy. I patiently waited each morning for a few minutes until eventually I got that photo,’ Mr Smith told the Courier Mail.
