A Foggy Morning

Canon EOS REBEL XT 1/500 second F/13.0 ISO 200 75 mm


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Richard from Montferland, Netherlands

'A Foggy Day' Frank Sinatra

A foggy day,
In london town,
It had me low,
And it had me down
I viewed the morning,
With much alarm,
The British Museum,
Had lost it's charm
How long I wondered,
Could this thing last,
But the age of miracles,
It hadn't past
And suddenly,
I saw you standing right there
And in foggy london town,
The sun was shining everywhere


14 Nov 2010 8:19am

@Richard T: this is so lovely from you, Richard :) Thanks !

Sonia Nansid from Barcelona Stockholm, Sweden

Superb mood! Lovely with all the people walking inside the tunnel! Your are right, it really makes a difference when people are in the pic.

14 Nov 2010 1:11pm

@Sonia Nansid: Not for everybody . I read some comments on great cityscape without anybody there where people loved to see empty streets without anybody alive . and then I read reply to these comments that photographer waited a few hours to get those empty streets ! Strange to me !

Bruno from froyennes, Belgium

An air of elegance and beauty as the architecture looms from the veil of fog over the pedestrian bridge. Superb in mono.

Pixim from Nice, France

A brightest morning awakening.
The lines disappear, leaving traces of impressions; shapes seem vague, and become wavering realities.
One morning on earth ... ;)

14 Nov 2010 5:50pm

@Pixim: this morning looked so much the same as Autumn mornings in Sarajevo, where I was born and lived till the war ! we do not have fog here , almost never ...

larhune64 from AHETZE, France

Un brouillard qui donne l'impression de voir une ville imaginaire , presque une illusion

Love the wispy mood in this shot. The spires are uplifting in the fog, and the people on the platform await their departure in the mist.

What a coincidence ! We both uploaded "fog" on the same day ;-)
If you were here I'd sing for you the wonderful Irish song "Foggy, foggy dew" - ok ?

@R.J.Dee: Hey Ralph. Glad to see you back from your trip . I go right now to see your fog image. As for song, I will try to find it on YuoTube :) If not, next time you send it to me :) I just found Marty Robbins singing this song ! It's beautiful and beautiful video too !

Fred Rune Rahm from Notodden, Norway

And when I just commented on your last one, pointing out the tough image, you present this one. Here you do just the opposite, this is soft, like a fairytale from the real world. This one deserves to be put on a wall, calming and beautiful.

"And the only, only thing that I did that was wrong
Was to keep her from the foggy, foggy dew."
Seeing your marvelous foggy bw picture makes me remeber Sinead O´Connor´s version of The foggy dew. Thank you for reminding me of that lovely song with Sinead O´Connor..
