In the middle of packing our house in London for our move to Jakarta, I had to make a week long trip to Paris for work. While any reason for going to Paris is a good one, work does not give me much time to really enjoy what that wonderful city has to offer. So I took a handful of pictures and moved on.
A few days later I was back in London finishing the packing of the house. I had one last weekend to be in London on my own and I had planed to go into town and walk in the footsteps of Dickens. And so I did, taking the same camera (Leica ME) which I had taken to Paris with me.
Fast forward a few weeks, and I find myself in Jakarta on the first free weekend since arriving. I am a bit under the weather, so I opt to stay in and try to unpack my camera equipment. Remembering that I had a memory card to dump, I set up my computer and went to work.
While in London I went to one of Dickens's homes which is now a museum. It was wonderful to see a victorian home but photographically there was little to shoot. The best shots were in the basement where I captured a few worth keeping.
I have been unable to take any pictures of Jakarta yet however it seems a great opportunity for some street photography. This is a genre that I have not really learned but I believe I will get a change to do just that.
