There was some amazing fog the other night, so I lured the brother into going for a photographic walk with me at about ten o’clock at night. We got some good shots (IMHO) so I thought I’d share.
I know a lot of people like to get rid of the orange color caused by the mercury lights, but I *like* it – it’s what I was trying to capture. (I admit the blue and pink are a bit of photo editing magic. But they look good.)
I always enjoy fog at night because with the lights it turns the world into a magical place. The foggy night I wish I’d captured the most was in January when I was twelve or thirteen. I stayed the night with a friend who lived uptown and at two or three a.m. we slunk outside. We’d had a decent snow, but it was the powdery kind, so it was blowing around a bit, but it was cold enough to make that heavy ground fog that really clings well. At the time Coin had just put in the new pink streetlights, so with the heavy fog, the whole world was this glowing pink, and the blowing snow was like glitter – it was like being inside of a fairy globe. Add to it that super stillness that you only find late at night in the winter when the whole world seems to be asleep, and it was just an amazing moment that I’ll never be able to capture.
Have a magically-foggy kind of day!
Cast your mind back to December when, on a cold, foggy night, two round little people went for a walk with their camera. A sheriff stopped to make sure they were alright, and lots of creepy cows mooed in the distance. A couple of cars drove past and finally the pair arrived home cold, damp, and achy, but with a handful of usable pictures. These are those pictures.
What, oh what, will tomorrow bring? Christmas photos? Something a little more spring-y? OooOOooooOOoooo! The suspense!
This is the September foggy morning I mentioned a couple posts back 🙂 Yay.
