WHY PHOTOGRAPHERS LOVE FOG

. . . well, at least the ones I know
love when the fog rolls in,
especially at night.

The snow started to melt today.
The ground stayed cold while the air got warm.
And that's the recipe for fog!

So I grabbed my camera
and viewed the world through a softer lens.

No hard edges. No sharp light.
Like Monet is his final years,
the scenery looks diffused and blurry
and takes on a heavenly feel.
All the lights are on dim
and easy on the eyes.

Hand me my camera!

  1. Nice photo's both beautiful and dreamy. An ethereal world captured through your camera lens and the poetic imagination of one Carl Sandburg's poem "Fog"

    The fog comes
    on little cat feet.

    It sits looking
    over harbor and city
    on silent haunches
    and then moves on.

    Happy New Year, 2011,
    joanny

  9. Hello Rick

    Beautiful view of the mysterious fog,
    [a la Monet] giving a special atmosphere.
    I like that, but it will also be a bit slippery, I think.

    Have a nice evening,
    Lovely greetings, Josephine
