JNW’s Halloween Challenge: Fog (Jennifer Nichole Wells)
On my way to work early one morning I suddenly felt like I was driving into the beginning of a scary movie. I had a few extra minutes, so I stopped real quick and took this photo. It had been a really long time since I had seen fog and fog so thick I couldn’t see down the long Expressway. My mind of course started thinking of every scary movie with a fog element. The one that came first and foremost is the old (1980) John Carpenter movie “The Fog” starring Jamie Lee Curtis. I recently watched the remake on Netflix. Why remake a movie if you aren’t going to make it better? The second fog related movie that came to mind and is a lot more interesting is “The Mist”, based on a story by Stephen King. Mr. King’s stories have always been a favorite, but they don’t always do them justice on the big screen. “The Mist” wasn’t a bad adaptation. I will forever be weary of fog. Not knowing what lies ahead makes my imagination run wild.
