Early birds in London

We wanted to try something different today. We’ve been scouting for photogenic places in London, a task that is actually not hard to fulfil at all because this city is just so easy to capture. This time we came across a beautiful place, the bridge across Thames that takes you to St. Paul’s Church. Our only problem was that it is such a well-known place so it is full of tourists at all times – but tourists do sleep, don’t they?

Fortunately, just a few days before, I watched Tamara Kalinic’s vlog from Venice where she funnily explains how she takes pictures without having people in them. I was having all sorts of fantasies of how she takes out a sound enhancing device and convinces everyone to stay out of frame until she takes the picture, but then reality hit me and she shows her phone : 5:30 a.m.! and she was wearing a full face of makeup and was already dressed…talking about super-humans :))

So that’s exactly what we did: we woke up at 4:30 a.m. and while I did my makeup, Paul made me coffee – he knows me well, I’m dangerous without enough coffee on board, and then we drove to St. Paul’s Church and started shooting at 6 a.m.

Fun fact: a bride and groom were shooting their wedding photos so we actually had to wait in line for the bridge to be empty.

This article, together with the photos, have been in stand by for some months now, so you will notice that not only this collection from Zara is long forgotten about but also that the weather in the UK is not as forgiving anymore.

Regardless, it was a wonderful morning! By 7:30 a.m. I was having my second coffee of the day when a thought just hit me: that’s how you know you’ve been productive.
