I won’t bore you with the business bit, except to say I spent many 12-hour days in the office feverishly working. On the weekends, I feverishly crammed in as much sightseeing as possible since I’d never been to London. (End result = exhaustion with a side of jet lag).
Although I was there for business, I toted my camera along and tried to work on how I take pictures. I love looking at travel pictures from other bloggers and secretly file away lessons I want to try on my next trip.
Just take pictures. That was my biggest mantra. I’m all about living in the moment but there are lots of times where I wished I’d taken the time to snap something. The carriage below was the first picture I took on the trip – it was rolling by right after I checked into my hotel.
Bad lighting: being winter, I battled the sun a lot. It never got too high up in the sky and set early. It created a lot of harsh light situations at places where I didn’t have time go to go back and get better pictures. I was barely able to get the Olympic countdown clock!
I experimented with getting more randomness, signs especially. I realized I love signs!
Of course there’s food. I feel like food pictures capture a lot about the trip.
Yes, I’m going to have to re-watch my Royal Wedding DVD and every other movie I own that’s set in Britain. I only now realized how many movies on the list I shared with you fit that category.
