After dropping my kids off for school last week I noticed a thick layer of fog rapidly moving in. Since I always have my camera on me I decided to stop off at the park before heading home to see what I could capture. It was dark, gloomy, rainy and foggy but I loved it! I thought about how eerily moody the scenery was. Each area of the park resembled a dense, creepy forest, or maybe the set of an elaborate Hollywood movie. I ended up staying for almost 3 hours, not only shooting but enjoying the view. I couldn’t believe my luck because, I was up so early that I had the entire park all to myself! I will admit, the silence mixed with the weather created a very spooky atmosphere.
Eventually the rain came in and started pouring down so I thought, “maybe it’s time to go?” “maybe I should stay and take some cool rain shots?” The next thing I know I see 2 huge stray dogs roaming around and not looking very friendly so I knew at that point the decision had been made for me! Shoots over! I packed up my camera and carefully drove home. Below are a few of the resulting images.

This way to early morning enchantment. To be continued…
Taking my daughter to the bus everyday at 6am. Unfortunately being the true night owl that I am I usually go to bed on average between 3am-5am. Now do the math. Needles to say, I’m always very tired! It’s way too early to be up….but it’s for my baby.

For the second morning in row a thick layer of fog engulfs my neighborhood, so I decided to drive around to try and capture a few shots of it. Unfortunately the photos really don’t convey the actual denseness of the fog. In real time it was impossible to to see directly in front of you. Everything was almost completely opaque for about 2 hours. Although it is certainly a safety hazard, and can be an inconvenience, there’s something beautiful and mysterious about fog that captures my attention whenever it occurs. I’ve always been fascinated with it’s hazy, blanketing effect. I’ll keep trying to document it for as long as it happens. We’ll see what takes place tomorrow morning and the rest of the week? Stay tuned…
