Dreams of Fog
I’m from the Pacific Northwest, and if there’s one thing we love to talk about, it’s the weather. Honestly, we’re kind of insufferable. However, you’re reading my blog, so you kind of signed up for suffering. It’s your own fault, really.
My favorite weather, without question, is foggy weather. I also love snowy weather and rainy weather and cloudy weather (not so much sunny weather), but foggy weather is my absolute fav. It’s the dreamiest of all the weather patterns. Fog softens the landscape, cools the air, muffles sound, and makes even the most mundane areas you’ve seen a thousand times before look mysterious. I love it.
Unfortunately for me, for whatever reason, there’s never fog in Ogaki. I’ve seen brief, thin fogs in Gifu City and out in Ginan, but that’s it. Otherwise, I’ve been bereft of my beautiful mist.
To get my fog fix, I like to scroll through my old photos. We got fog often in the Pacific Northwest, and I loved taking pictures of it, so I have a lot to choose from. Please enjoy this brief selection from my collection.
