The Fog

We’ve had some rather foggy night recently. Weather fascinates me so getting strange nights where everything kind of glows is fun.

Years ago I remember taking a photo in my parent’s backyard on a foggy night. I just pointed the camera into the nearly-black yard just to see what would happen and was kind of shocked to see the result when I got it back from the lab; everything just appeared and had an ethereal glow. It was one of the first times I had ever shot anything at night so long exposures was new to me. Long story short, this is how I was introduced to shooting long-ish exposures at night.

On Monday night this week I decided to head out for an hour or so just to try a few night shots while the fog was around. I mostly went around downtown, including Victoria Park, City Hall, and the KPL.

At first glance I was kind of underwhelmed with my shots and felt like the time I spent was a waste, but the more I looked at them, the more I liked them. Mostly it was refreshing to just get up and head out to shoot for a change, something I haven’t done in a while. Oh, and while shooting at the library, I found out they have these alternating coloured light panels on the sides of the building. Pretty rad.
