Fog In Toronto, a fog installation by Fujiko Nakaya during an all night Toronto's art festival. She created world's first "fog sculpture" at the 1970 Osaka Expo in 1970.
Just having fun shooting with Mking and Randomcameraguy.
no processing at all except frame and resizing.

i really like the points of light in this shot. the extreme angle seems to capture the disorienting feeling of walking through the fog. there is a lot for me to learn about this shot. thanks..

This is very cool Peter, I was actually expecting "The Hand" but I like this one much better-- especially that woman covering her mouth with her hand; has a very eerie and disturbing flavour (I can see where the UFO vibe comes from now!) Much more poignant than the laughing and screaming teens and clubbers, which is all I can remember.

nice. [still love that "hand" shot though] this one definately has a nice range of emotions in it. I don't remember seeing this scene--then again, one couldn't see much!

Depth is nonexistence here, the fog smoothened dimension, the color is errie, and those two figures look as if they have stepped in from a Bunuel-Dali conspiracy movie! Bravo!

The tilt is working well, the orange light is really awesome. The foggy characters are so mysterious. Perfect moody capture.

Hi Peter (the 2nd usual suspect)
I wouldn't now it was an exhibit, I would think you witnessed an apocalyptic moment ;o). The lady expression, the guy with the mobile (except the one with hands in picket) the color,the fog, the tilt ... everything to give this feeling.

Great mysterious atmosphere created by your shot. The orange glow through the fog does add an otherwordly fel to your picture. I like the tilt as this adds to the mood.

Oh boy! You guys had a lot of fun, isn't it? I just love the orange glow of this one. Without knowing the context, I would be almost frightened by this photo. Especially with the woman farther away with her hand on her mouth, as if she was anxious of something (angry beast???). But hey! Art festival could be a frightening experience! ;)
I like the tilt here, goes well with the photo, helping to the feeling. Tilting with meaning, which is not always the case.
Halloween before the time.

So great, that trying to explain it - is to ruin it.
Let us submerge into the world of unspecified beauty.
And your photo is like that.
There is only one way for a photographer to take a shot at an art. ANY ART.
Create an art on its own.
No compromise accepted.

Dunno about close encounters...more like Night of the Living Dead. Those people look like zombies staggering through the mist in pursuit of their next meal...

perhaps the most "te-ish" shot of the series, very cool effect this fog... an apt title (esp with those three lights over the three people)... i like the tilt and the low pov, also cool how they gradually dissapear from the photo esp. the way the third guy was cut, feet and head... nice colour too... perhaps my only criticism is that i wish the guy was not on his cell... (or if you maybe caught him while dialing.. you know "beam me up...")

Beautiful mody shot, Peter. Ech shot of yours is ineluctably, willfully different from the one before, a rare feat on TE (it helps of course if you don't uload in industrial fashion like some of us poor dogs in far flung places do...)
I love the tilt here which has something nautical about it - I thik of the Sea Wolf by Jack London - the kind of bok that can change your life when you are 17...
