Foggy Karenina: The End

Yes, it’s time to end a series that has gone on almost as long as the Tolstoy novel itself. I hope you’ll now agree that while sunny photos are all alike, each foggy photo is foggy in its own way. You can use the links on this blog page to find the earlier entries in the five-part series.

It was tempting to conclude by showing a MUNI train rushing out of the fog. But I opted instead for what I’ll call Chamber of Commerce Fog.

In the top panoramic image, seen above the trees of Golden Gate Park, are the towers of St. Ignatius Cathedral and Lone Mountain tower, both on the campus of the University of San Francisco. In the bottom photo, just a hint of the Marin Headlands shows above sunset fog in the Golden Gate Strait. As always, clicking on the image opens it larger. Thanks for looking in!

Form and Function

This isn’t a tree; it’s actually a striking metal sculpture called “Split,” by Roxy Paine (2003). But for this bird at the Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle, it resembles a tree, has altitude and view and general perchability … so why not?
