Week 1: Fog

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.

    Dammit, you’re messing with me! Earlier today I updated my blogroll and moved you from the “Project365” section to the regular “My Favorites” section, now I need to move you back :-p

    Nice to see you shooting again, I miss your photography!
