Fog Rolling In by taffy

Fog Rolling In

Today's been filled with strange skylines as fog rolled in, out, and in again. Buildings appeared, disappeared, reappeared throughout the day. So, a fairly entertaining day if the criteria is weather.
I'm glad you enjoyed the pelican cartoon - thanks for your comments, smiles, and laughs.
What a vision to see, a few miles west and all it has been is just grey and blah!
No fog, no interest :(

Fabulous shot!

Eerie and full of things to see

Is this your view? Very nice. I was hoping to be in Chicago in May and was gonna see if you and Junko could meet me, but the grad ceremony for my niece at Loyola is postponed to August. So maybe a visit then?

Wonderful cityscape

What a fabulous view! Love that fog rolling in! Wonderful atmosphere!
March 29th, 2020  
You sure live in an amazing place, what an amazing view.
March 29th, 2020  
That is wonderful with the fog. Well spotting!

Very atmospheric. New Zealand (the land of the long white cloud) meets Chicago.

Cool view!

A fabulous image and perfect in B&W

@darylo Yes, we're definitely spoiled by our view! But this was a 300mm almost, so it's a way off. Who knows what August will bring, but if we are here, we'd love to see you! We are hoping to be on Beaver Island, but so much depends on the degree to which Covid19 is under control. The island is asking seasonal residents not to come, out of fear of overwhelming the almost non-existent health care opportunities there. No doctors, only a rural health center with an LPN, and nothing in the way of staff. One ambulance with EMT personnel but not many. It's all quite unnerving. Hope you are doing well!

You have to be high to see the value of the fog. I'm hoping for fog away down in a distant valley but think I'm doomed!
March 29th, 2020  
Fantastic.
March 29th, 2020  
It makes for such an interesting photo when you can see both the close by buildings and the distant buildings over the top of the fog. :)

I love the way the church steeple stands out from the fog. Super capture.
March 29th, 2020  
Fantastic capture of this city scene. The coming-in fog makes it so impressive. Big fav.
March 29th, 2020  
Great capture - would have been fascinating to watch :)
March 29th, 2020  
Great photo! Fog can be so atmospheric but is jolly difficult to photograph. This is wonderful with the silhouette of the church steeple. BTW on the news here in the UK they described Chicago, along with Detroit and New Orleans, as America's poorest cities. I know there is poverty there, but what big city is not home to the disadvantaged? I never would have put Chicago in the same category as Detroit, would you?
March 29th, 2020  
stunning...
March 29th, 2020  
Wow, a wonderful capture!
March 29th, 2020  
Such an interesting shot, lots of detail, from the Salvation Army board to the flag, and the church that looks like it was there long before all the other buildings.
March 29th, 2020  
Great image with all the layers and so much to see
March 29th, 2020  
Part of this view is obscured, part revealed. Sort of a metaphor for the times.
March 29th, 2020  
Great capture of the fog. Works well in B&W, too.
March 29th, 2020  
Nice capture.
March 29th, 2020  
Fabulous b&w image with a wonderful atmospheric look
March 29th, 2020  
Great shot- it's interesting to see the buildings appear and disappear within the scene. Good catch.
March 29th, 2020  
Great composition and capture. Fav,!! 😀
March 29th, 2020  
Impressive view. I like it!
March 29th, 2020  
Quite fascinating seeing that fog over your city.
March 29th, 2020  
Great capture.
March 29th, 2020  
I guess most of us will take any entertainment in these times. You found a great moment for this shot with the church in full view and finding itself the centrepiece (albeit not in the centre) of the shot.
March 29th, 2020  
So you had some good entertainment today, impressive view!
March 29th, 2020  
Wonderful shot

@redandwhite I lived in Michigan for almost 20 years, 4 of them in a Detroit suburb. The major difference between Detroit and Chicago is that we have an extensive public transportation system, while Detroit relies on autos (no surprise, center of the auto industry). With public transportation, there are more job options. But Detroit had a wonderful history of being a beautiful city with many single family homes and a solid comfortable population. In the 1960s, racial strife, riots changed the city for decades, devastating it and they were just starting to "come back." Chicago has areas in the west and south sides that have extreme poverty and is one of the most segregated cities in the midwest if not the country. On the surface, though, Chicago seems to be in much better shape with major corporate headquarters, many Michelin starred restaurants, the lakefront, parks, etc. If you dig below the surface, there are a lot of serious issues underlying life here.

This is a great metaphor for me. Just as the fog silently and imperceptibly overlaps the city, so does coronavirus.

Reminds me of the film The Fog, the way it seems to be rolling in.

What a contrast of foreground and background
