Park in Fog

Added on by Jeff Seltzer.

Where I live in Southern California ("The Valley") it's rare that we get really thick fog this far inland...it's even more rare that we get really thick fog this far inland, and I'm not too lazy to wake-up and photograph. So, it was a rare occasion indeed last weekend that I got a chance to capture some images at the park around the corner. I love fog because it creates a clutter-free background with just about anything, which is important to me when I shoot. Early morning is also great at the park because there's a relative lack of people getting in my way. Still, several runners stopped and just stared at me as I photographed, no doubt thinking, "what the hell is he taking a picture of??!"  (which is a typical reaction for me). All images are taken with the Fuji X-Pro1 with 35mm lens.

(Incidentally, the last time the fog came in - and I wasn't so lazy - was nearly three years ago when I created one of my seminal images, "Infield in Fog" which is here.
