This morning Cambridge was enveloped in fog, so we went for a walk around town before the city got going, taking in the river and the green spaces where the sense of fog was at its most apparent.
This shot came about between reading On Photographs, and watching T. Hopper’s recent video on composition. Hopper had some wonderful examples of using leading lines and giving photos a sense of depth, which I was trying to apply in the fog here. At the same time, whilst lining up the shot through the eye piece I caught the reflection of the scooter approaching, so I took that "decisive moment" type street photography lesson from the book at waited for the scooter to join the existing composition. Not the most effective use of the fog, but it was nice to try applying some of what I’ve been learning recently.
