San Francisco fog is overrated.
There. I said it. I don’t care if I have committed treason, sacrilege, blasphemy and libel against my hometown. I have seen real fog: fog on the back roads of Connecticut can get so thick that you can’t see more than six feet in front of you. Fog along the coast of Sonoma County comes in so hard and heavy from the ocean that all travel has to cease at night or turn around and head inland.
San Francisco’s fog in most neighborhoods is a pretty thin broth by comparison.
Most of the time.
When I awoke this morning, I could not figure out why my apartment was so dark.
There are hills beyond these Edwardians. Honest.
Not Connecticut Opalescent Opaque by any means, but impressive.
Since I still have an iPhone 4, all 3 pictures came out pixellated, which is fine by me. My plans with these pictures consist first of blurring them even more and then using software such as Sketcher and Photoshop Elements (just bought it) to create “watercolors” and “oil paintings” from them. I think the middle one has promise. Somehow, I don’t think that make these pictures less pixellated, more in focus, more like photographs (!) will prove the best treatment.
