Foggy Karenina IV

After a short break, here is more evidence making the tongue-in-cheek case that (to appropriate Tolstoy) while all sunny photographs are alike, each foggy photograph is foggy in its own way. Today: Rainforest Fog. Actually, it’s here in San Francisco, the west side of Sutro Forest seen from the Inner Sunset neighborhood. But the rangy eucalyptus tops, and the interlacing of fog and woods, often puts me in mind of a tropical rainforest.

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?
