For someone who is not a early morning person it is great when you wake up late and the fog is still lingering. The weather was relatively warm with what looked like 100% cloud cover and no wind so I headed to Richmond, while most people were at work I had the freedom of the Borough so to speak. Now I would be the first to say that I am not a fan of monochrome photos, there are only a select few photos that look better in black and white while many people convert to black and white just because the colour version doesn't look good and this defies the point in true monochrome photography. It really is a specialist talent that perhaps one day I will study more, that being said, this is my first black and white photo ever. Due to the dull day with little colour I had the idea to convert this shot while I was taking it and even though I resisted, it could only be this way!

The fog and mist on the water brings many great ideas but unfortunately it was starting to clear but still enough to get the effect. The bridge itself looked great from afar but I couldn't find a good vantage point and as I got closer the fog became thinner. The eerieness of the fog is something that you don't see to often but when you do it can produce some very interesting shots, next time I will be heading into the City where hopefully I can catch some tall buildings with the lights on.
