Single tree, morning mist

I pulled back the curtains this morning to find a thick fog blanket draped over my back garden. I could not even see the houses opposite. It’s the first fog we have had since the summer and it brings with it, for me at least, a glimmer of hope and inspiration.

It has been summer you see. A lovely warm summer at that, which is great, it has been really lovely. With the trees in full leaf and the bright sunny weather I have not been inspired to photograph trees though.

I love fog, as do many photographers, so imagine my joy to see the thick fog this morning. It’s a good sign. A sign that cooler weather is coming which brings the potential for more fog and mist and the dropping of the leaves and the bare trees of winter, and frost and possibly snow and… I’m getting a little ahead of myself. Unfortunately I have a full time job sitting at a desk but I thought I might be able to take a few photos before I head into work. And I did.

Broad Street, Oxford

Browsing through some old images, from 2008, I came across this scene from a trip to Oxford. I rather like it. It says a lot about what Oxford is like to a visitor of the lovely city; beautiful old buildings, old and new street signs, paving slabs and cobbles, and bicycles, lots of bicycles.
