One more case of being in the right place at the right time… with a camera! It wasn’t until I gave this a bit of a black and white ‘treatment’ that I began to see it as a shot I will revisit one day to write a story based on my initial impressions after seeing it hours after taking it back home.
For those who don’t know, the city in question is the amazing city of San Francisco hanging out over in the eastern sector of the photo. Fog is a common occurrence there at certain times of the year… like the summer! Yet it takes being in the right spot to observe the phenomena to truly appreciate how magnificently beautiful fog can be.
I got one of those opportunities with this photo. As is the case with many of the photos I take, I have the tendency to marvel first, shoot second! I’m lucky more times than not when shooting. The photos seem to understand I need a couple extra seconds to be awed, THEN I can shoot!
