With Washington DC blanketed in a layer of fog, it was a perfect time for spies to exchange information.
This past weekend the DC area was covered in a thick fog layer. Normally we don’t get fog like we got over the weekend! So of course that means going out and getting pictures in the fog. Sunday night I went out with a friend to shoot pictures in DC. The air was completely saturated with water, everything had a coating of moisture on it. The air was so dense that when standing on the DC side of the Potomac River you couldn’t even see the Virginia shoreline.
Eventually we made it down to the Lincoln Memorial. There are two walking paths on either side of the Reflecting Pool that run from the Lincoln Memorial down to the World War II Memorial. The air was so heavy that you could only see about a third of the way down the pathway and then everything just disappeared. There was no World War II Memorial, no Washington Monument, and no US Capitol to be seen from the Lincoln Memorial.
The heavy fog and silhouetted people really adds some mystery to the photo.
