Pre-dawn Fog


12/10/20 Foggy in Maple Leaf

Thinking I had probably exhausted all the pre-dawn sketching possibilities from our livingroom window, I still open the shades every morning with some anticipation, just in case. On this morning, I was delighted by fog, which diffuses light but also seems to reflect it softly.

My plan was to focus on that diffused light above the rooftops and between two houses across the street. Just then, around 6:45 a.m., a porch light came on, and our neighbor came out with his trash can. That’s when I noticed that they had put up a string of lights on their mantle.

By 7:05 a.m., the fog suddenly thinned, and the misty moment was over.
