Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

Fog And Light

In Umberto Eco's new book, The Mysterious Flame of Queen Loana (Harcourt), the lead character collects quotations about fog. Eco helps us see the imaginative aspects of this most wondrous of atmospheric conditions, one that can shroud all before us or reveal details in objects close to us while obscuring the background. Our Picture This! assignment for this month is "Fog and Light," with images made in the fog or, perhaps in its most interesting moments, when it begins to burn off and simultaneously reveals and hides. So search your files, or get into the foggy air and send us your best foggy day shots.

This photo was made on a foggy November morning in New York's Central Park among the stately elms of Poet's Walk.
