The weather in Chicago this week has been less than stellar; oppressive humidity, temperatures 95 degrees and higher…literally sweltering. Yet, there has been this occasional coolness at the lakefront causing some interesting weather patterns. This haunting fog has been weaving its way through the streets and wrapping around the skyscrapers seeming to cloak them in mystery.
Yesterday, after spending a couple hours shooting some architectural abstracts (images coming in another post), I met up with a friend and we headed to the John Hancock Observatory to see if the fog was cooperating. We were in luck! The fog was coming in very thick and at lower altitudes creating this moody environment where the city looks like it’s being invaded by this oppressive blanket of fog.
Definitely a fun weather phenomenon to photograph!
