Where: Lakewood, CA
Between Meeting: Driving to the Office
I was still on Eastern Time when I woke up at 4:00am in LA. I’m not a morning person, so it’s great when I travel East to West and find myself up early, because dawn can be the best light of the day.
On my way to the office the world started to light up and to my delight, it was foggy. Knowing fog can create mood and drama, I looked everywhere for something interesting to photograph.
But I was in a soulless suburb of LA surrounded by pedestrian looking fast food restaurants and chain stores. Then I pulled into the parking lot of the Lakewood Center Mall. Since it was early, there were no cars or people and I found my shot that used the fog to convey a story.
