Mornings at the Station

It’s getting dark. Once again, an impressionist shot. But I will say that this darkness is unusual – for one, crappy camera, but also today has been a particularly foggy day, and it’s only getting worse now that evening is upon us.

I’m enjoying the atmosphere of the second shot, though. I’m standing between the two tracks, and something about that light effect and the out-of-focus is very appealing to me.

The usual angle, as it were…

Incidentally, I am currently reading José Saramago’s Blindness (mixed feelings). Today’s weather is a lot like his characters describe their blindness: just a lot of white. Although the fog here is probably less luminescent; going home is going to be interesting. Oh yes, and we lost all our snow.

Speaking of keeping a lid on things, I travel next week to Macedonia again, returning on the 23rd. I have mixed feelings about this trip, but I guess it’s good to be recognized?

    These photos are just lovely. I actually really like fog, but that may be because I hardly ever see it. Where I live it is unrelievedly sunny nearly all the time, so fog and clouds are exciting and mysterious to me.

    Lovely photos, especially the second. I’m totally drawn into the scene by the solitary blue light in the far distance. It’s very evocative.

    The second shot is wonderful. I’m always excited by fog too, like kestrel. It’s not uncommon here this time of the year, but it clears early in the morning and usually before I get to work. Fog here also almost always means the day is going to be sunny.
