hedgehog in the fog

 

 

there's something magical about fog. it sets a mood and transforms almost any landscape into a mysterious place. i took these photos a while back somewhere around here. when i think of how fog can be used not only to set a mood in a film, but also a sort of character i often think back to yuri norstein's animated film "hedgehog in the mist." tho quite old now, it still manages to capture a real sense of mystery. the entire film is meticulously handcrafted and so beautiful and precious. i want to go into this world and meet the hedgehog...
