Foggy Morning

I woke to Taco doing his "I got to go outside" noise, it sounds kinda like a snort/sneeze. It can be very annoying, but hey I can't complain, at least he tells me. My eyes fall on the clock, I groan. It's only been 4 1/2 hours! I stumble into the kitchen and then to the door. The bright light temporarily blinding me. Once I get my focus on, I realize the morning is so foggy I can barely see past the neighbors house. Photo op!

I quickly do a turn around and come in to get the camera and my flip flops. Yes folks I went out in the street in my nightgown! Not like anyone saw me, except for the neighbors dog, who greeted me with a some not so friendly barks. I had to make my presence known and then it was all wags between us. We walked to the field and I was taken aback by the pure spectacular beauty. I love fog, it makes all things glisten and the smallest things stand out.

The fog was disappearing right before my eyes, the timing of me getting up couldn't have been more perfect. Another 10 minutes and I would have missed it.

I walked back out of the brush (sorry excuse for trees).

To find cuteness waiting for me at the corner.

What a great morning!

I wouldn't have thought you could get such beautiful photos in the fog. I learn something new every day.

Great photos on a foggy morning, Heather! Good job.

Now, go take a nap! ;-)

Nice photos you have there, I love the fog!

The last time I was in Venice, there was a morning fog / mist haze. I took the opportunity to go to San Michelle, the graveyard island. It's hard to describe how beautiful all the thousand year old architecture looks on a foggy morning. You can only make out the large shapes so it feels going back in time because you can't see the water taxis or modern clothes on people walking around. With a little imagination, you see people in sixteenth century clothes strolling around on the Fondamenta Nuove.

What a lovely morning. That you could appreciate it so readily on 4 1/2 hours of sleep is quite a feat. lol.

On a side note, I didn't realize you'd changed your blog address. I wasn't getting any of your updates. Not that I was particularly current on my blog reading, falling behind is my middle name...names. :)
