  1. These are beautiful! great photos

  2. You keep finding new aspects of that beautiful bridge. I love the one with just the top peeking out from the fog!

  3. WONDERFUL!!! That first image is my favorite! These make me miss foggy days … we don’t get much of it here but we do sometimes get low clouds.

  4. I first had to figure out that the gust in Fogust is not pronounced like the gust in Augustus but similar to the gust in August. It was then when the fog lifted…
    Beautiful captures

  5. I love the atmosphere of fog and mystery combined with your keen focus on the bridge. Lovely, Jane. I hope the smoke from the fires has abated. In B.C., it’s still a bit smoky, but better.

  6. “Chains and Bridge” – love it! What a powerful composition, perfectly put together. The Sam Able quote is so generous in spirit, don’t you think? That’s refreshing.
    The Haas quote, by contrast, is quite tough, but it’s a good counterpart to Able’s quote. The foreshortening in the first photo – “Fogust” that makes sense! – is very effective at throwing everything off just the right amount to make it interesting, I think. It’s good to keep returning to a subject the way you do, Jane. Hope you’re having a great week!

  7. We’re having days of grey skies here with rain and I love to have the sun out, but I loved your captures. They look so stunning! 🙂

    • Hi Cheryl, It’s been a particularly foggy August…I am loving the moody photography but looking forward to a sunny September. 🙂 Happy you enjoyed these photos– thanks so much. Wishing you sunny days ahead. 🌞

  8. Raising beautifully to your theme of Fogust, thank you for sharing your amazing talent.

  9. The simplicity of Flying High is pushes it to the top of my favorites. Jane, well done with all.

  10. Thank you for these loving captures of The City’s foggy scenes. You take me back and make me almost wish I was there now… but then I look out my window and I’ll stick with the memories of the City by the Bay. We’re so fortunate to live in or visit some of the most delightful spots on earth.

    • Hi Gunta, So nice that you have good memories of SF. We are enjoying city life after many years on a rural barrier island. Variety is the spice…as they say. Glad these brought back fond memories—thanks for your appreciation and I hope you have a wonderful week. 😁☀️

  11. A great series showing the iconic SF fog!

  12. Great photos, Jane, and your phrase, Fogust, hits the mark.
    Ω

  13. I see you’ve been walking around again in a fog. 😉

  14. Never seen the bridge in the fog for real, but it is such an iconic view. Lovely images Jane. I especially like the joy of ‘Splash’ and the ethereal ‘Flying High’

  15. Wonderful tribute to San Francisco’s mysterious Fogust. Love seeing Golden Gate rise above the fog.

  16. In every shot you explain what my heart feels about fog ~ its beauty, mystery and in the end the charm it has for those who love the sea 🙂 Your first shot, is just wow, an iconic shot of an iconic city. Beautiful. Wishing you a great week ahead.

    • Thanks very much, Randall. I love when there’s a wall of fog enveloping the bridge. It has been quite the summer for foggy and mysterious days- I love them but have September in my sights. 🙂 I’m happy you enjoyed these shots and hope you had a great weekend.

  17. Breathtaking images. Thank you for sharing, Jane!

  18. Ah there she is again, peeking thru the fog. Something magical about her isn’t there? Although I am not a fan of the chill it brings, the fog makes for terrific photography Jane, as shown by the many moods of these beauties. The chains shot was my fav of the set

  19. wonderful, especially “Flying High” and “Chains”
    I went to college on the eastern shore of Maryland, and have been missing late-night walks in the fog. Boston seemed to specialize more in human-generated miasma.

  20. I love how you interpreted the fog in your neck of the woods !

  21. You’re making me cold.🌫

  22. gorgeous post Jane….. flying high standing out. Plenty of mysterious moments over there in SF😜

  23. Fantastic pictures! Wow! Thank you for sharing. And I really relate to the quotes you posted. ☺️

  24. I love the way the bridge evaporates into the air.

  25. Reblogged this on pappeterian and commented:
    Really beautiful pictures!

  26. These images are great and the heavy fog is amazing Jane 🙂

  27. Good Fogust morning to you! Great pics!

  28. 🙂 Amazing pictures!
    Some of them look kind of spooky…
    Have a very HAPPY Sunday!
    Claudia 🙂

  29. Great series, Jane, showing off the bridge through the changing fog. “Chains and Bridge” particularly touched me.

  30. Beautiful shots, whether color or monochrome! Fogune, Foguly, and Fogust are the foggiest months there, right?

  31. Flying high ist Magic👍👍👍

  32. Haunting and mysterious – especially the b&w pictures.
    Excellent!

  33. Fine series, Jane. Fog is good for photo’s! 🙂

  34. Creating a magical scene. Wonderful stuff (of course)

  35. Great shots! Love this bridge.

  36. Beautiful series, Jane. Love the moods.

  37. Such wonderful evocative photographs. But I’d be most disappointed with such a summer. Not that it’s been much better here in Vancouver with all the smoke 😦
    Alison

    • Hi Alison, I was up your way a few weeks ago and it was disappointing to say the least, with the wildfire smoke. And of course, here in CA. Happy you enjoyed these photos, we have sunny days, too, so I do love it when the fog rolls in. 🙂 Thanks very much and hope you’re having a great summer.

  38. The magic of the location and your skill with the camera! 🙂 🙂 Chains and Bridge speaks to me and I completely love Splash! Happy Sunday, Jane.

  39. Hi Jane

    You know I love your work!

    Any recent pics of your granddaughter?

    Love to you and Bob

  40. So ethereal Jane and reminds me of back in 1992 when we were at the blues festival starring B.B. King on his 66th birthday. The fog was thick over the bridge, then about 11am it slowly lifted and everyone cheered

  41. Wonderful set of shots, Jane. Nice work.

  42. “Flying High” is an excellent example of minimalism.

    It’s been quite a while since I’ve heard anyone mention Richard Misrach.

  43. Wonderful, Jane! I never tire of seeing the bridge peeking above the fog.

Love to hear what you think...
