Today was extraordinarily foggy, and I mean seriously foggy. It started off as a beautiful day when I left the house this afternoon, but as the day progressed, you could notice that you could not see very far into the distance. I thought it would be interesting to have some photos taken. However my camera would not capture the fog…unless if someone else was in the picture 🙂 And yes that figure in the pictures is me– I was not stalking someone on the streets so I get get a picture of the foggy surroundings. My sister held the camera. I thought these came out eerie, but peaceful at the same time…
[cue music] Strangers in the night….
On a slightly different topic, there was a little old lady busking for change at the bus stop. Although it was freezing cold tonight, she was there with her mic hooked up onto an amplifier with music playing in the background. She sang songs for everyone waiting for their buses. I thought it was nice and when I went up to her, I realized she was busking for a cause. She was helping raise money for kids in Kenya who had HIV. This whole scene was just so nice and I watched as others also dropped in their coins after mine. What a beautiful way to round off a day. 🙂

Beautiful indeed, that’s quite some determination on the elderly lady’s part. Love the pictures! it’s pretty clear around metrotown, too bad too. I love fog 🙂
Thank you 😀 Yeah it was pretty motivating watching her singing in the cold…especially when everyone else decided to pitch in and help her with her cause 🙂
That’s sweet of everyone, It shows the rare yet wonderful side human nature 🙂
Just left a friends house in Crescent Beach to drive back to White Rock proper. Incredibly thick fog tonight (10pm at that time). Moody photos. Love the effect of the street lights too.
Thank you 😀 Ahaha I’m so worried about everyone who’s driving because of the lack of visibility!
almost backed into my neighbours car cause of the fog lol and it was parked… -_-
LOL! Exactly why I am so freaked out about traffic today XD I don’t think i’ve seen it this foggy since coming back to vancouver!
It was such a weird night! I left my house in the evening around 5:30PM and it was perfectly fine where I lived [South Vancouver] and it was perfectly clear and stayed indoors until 11PM at the Croatian Cultural Center… wow, by the time I left the venue, it was insanely foggy! Really eerie but I loved it.. thank goodness I chose not to drive! Nearly got hit by a truck because he wasn’t paying much attention but it was pretty cool that the fog disappeared around Victoria and 38th… it was like a border, haha.
Gotta love Vancouver weather!
Ahaha! Exactly! It was perfectly normal in the morning for me, but suddenly out of nowhere, fog was everywhere! =P
I love how eerie Vancouver looks in the fog. Remember two years ago, when we were literally wrapped in a cloud?
Your first picture with the girl walking down the road with the intersection: I love how you captured the outlandish feeling the fog creates.
thank you! I do remember! I don’t know if it made things creepy or mystical! =P
