Fog is a photographer’s best friend

And we don't hang out enough. The other day I literally made myself go out in the morning before the fog burned off. I left it too late (of course...I'm so damn lazy) and didn't get as much as I wanted to, but it was a productive 90 minutes. Next time I'll move my ass... Continue Reading →
