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.
