Today, I’m very stuck.
When Sunday came up as day of selection for Chronicle, I leapt at the chance.
Knowing (thinking?) that I’d be shooting weddings and life stories on Saturdays and that would give plenty of scope to a Sunday story.
The fact is, that’s not the case. I mean, I am shooting on Saturdays but I’m also shooting this weekend on Sunday too.
This is the rock n roll life of a modern day wedding photographer:
07:00 Leave home
09:00 Arrive at wedding destination three hours early. Sit in car eating Pringles. No reception on phone.
22:00 Leave wedding venue to find I have a puncture on my driver side front wheel.
03:30 Arrive at the Purple Palace (Premiere Inn) located next to Gatwick airport after a 5.5 hour journey that should have been one hour.
08:21 (now). Realism there is no 4G coverage nor does the WiFi work in the hotel.
08:21 (now). Realism that Chronicle is due.
08:21 (now). Hang out of window connecting to some 3G to post something. Anything.
11:00 Start of a 12 Hour Wedding.
23:00 Drive three hours.
02:00 Bed & Family
And so, my friends, this week, much like last if I think about it, I don’t have the beautifully curated images my colleagues create with such ease.
In fact, I have nothing, because I have access to nothing and my predictive text on my phone is driving me crazy.
I leave you, instead, with a wedding slideshow, which does have some relation to today - in that I published it today.
Happy Sunday everybody.
