Street photography

Foggy Karenina

It is a truth universally acknowledged — in both the best of times and the worst of times — that while all sunny photographs are alike, each foggy photograph is foggy in its own way.

Okay, overstatement. But I did manage to work in references to three of the great opening lines in literature. (For more, consider this article in The Telegraph).

In the next few days I’ll be showcasing varieties of fog — most from recent work. First: Noir Fog, from a night along Judah Street in San Francisco.

Late for the Sky

Even if you can’t get uphill before the sunset’s gone, you might find an image elsewhere. Here, I caught an orange sky reflected in a stream of water, which was pouring down a driveway and heading downhill in the gutter. The glistening contrast was quite strong to begin with, and I simply darkened any distracting bits and then tilted the image 90 degrees to complete the abstraction. You can get a sense of the original sight by looking at the picture sideways.
