While I miss the 365 project, I realized I just don’t have time to take the kinds of photos I want to take on a daily basis. So, I’m going to do it weekly instead – 52Weeks.
This morning, I woke up to some great fog. It was think and silent and just awesome for taking shots. Little did I realize that wherever I would go, it would be a bit different. Here are six shots from the fog. I got down to these six from the fifty-five shots I took.
As I was shooting these photos, I had to chuckle to myself as the voice of my old college art professor filled my head. I painted these pieces in college once where it was a lot of isolation – fog – lack of clarity of the full picture. He came up to me as I stood in front of the class, put his arm around me, and announced that I needed a hug. My art was clearly showing what I was feeling inside. Isolated. Looking for clarity and having a hard time finding it. Ironically, just like some of my photos today, the inner feelings definitely came through the lens as I chose subjects that were unclear – foggy and isolated.
But this last photo is the one I keep in mind for myself. Light does burn through the fog. You just have to wait for it and be patient and enjoy the view as it happens.
