We spent the day traveling from Rome to London, and moving from Heathrow to London Hackney. We left home at 10 and reached our new home at 17. Considering the time zone change, that is 8 hours of traveling. It was the usual maze of cabs, air-terminals, and subways which make for the “modern traveling”.
Once arrived I had to start the “preparation” for the wedding, that is, making sure all the batteries are charged, all the lenses are clear, all the sensors are clean, and all the memory cards are empty. It may sound stupid, but it’s fundamental, you don’t want to find yourself in the middle of the wedding ceremony with your memory card filling up too quickly or find out at the end of the shooting that most of your photos have spots due to unclean lenses or sensors. Let alone what would happen if you run out of battery too soon.
So, if you do the math you’ll see how my day ended pretty soon. We had just the time to go for a south indian dinner. Excellent spicy veggie food. Not the kind of tasteless exotic meals that most of indian restaurants serve in Rome. I love London for its multi-ethnical cuisine.
And then straight to bed, we need resting before starting the three-days pakistan-english wedding photoshoot.
