Weekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic Cries of Fog

“One day many years ago a man walked along and stood in the sound of the ocean on a cold sunless shore and said, “We need a voice to call across the water, to warn ships; I’ll make one. I’ll make a voice like all of time and all of the fog that ever was; I’ll make a voice that is like an empty bed beside you all night long, and like an empty house when you open the door, and like trees in autumn with no leaves. A sound like the birds flying south, crying, and a sound like November wind and the sea on the hard, cold shore. I’ll make a sound that’s so alone that no one can miss it, that whoever hears it will weep in their souls, and hearths will seem warmer, and being inside will seem better to all who hear it in the distant towns. I’ll make me a sound and an apparatus and they’ll call it a Fog Horn and whoever hears it will know the sadness of eternity and the briefness of life.”
― Ray BradburyThe Fog Horn

wordpressWeekly Photo Challenge: Nostalgic. Sometimes, we long for the past: for moments we want to remember or recapture. The good times. The golden years. Or perhaps we’re homesick, or longing for something — or someone — that might have been.

Fog is what represents nostalgia to me. It screams it. It cries it. It feels it. It is nostalgia, walk through it and it will drench you with it.

    1. You know, that last picture you posted of your daugh (white dress and red sneakers) is exactly how I pictured my character at a younger age! Exactly. Look. Energy. Style. Todo.


  1. Beautiful photo and a great piece of writing from Ray Bradbury – one of my favourite writers. You have captured the essence of nostalgia here.


  2. We have had a lot of fog here lately, I always find it a little eerie.
    Today though, I found inspiration in fog. Perhaps you planted the seed of the idea


    1. I actually love fog… but it does give me a sense of fore longing. Have you ever attempted to paint a fog scene? I did a watercolor once…


It's not a monologue if you leave me a comment.
