Fog, Spokane

Photograph by Jason Zito

I love Spokane, one of the hidden gems of the Northwest. I'm always excited to be traveling through this city, and it lends itself so well to photography. I spent the entire day taking pictures and settled in to eat dinner at a local restaurant. I was shocked when I left the restaurant to see the entire city enveloped in fog. I loved the way the lights shone through the fog and silhouetted the people as they walked. I grabbed my camera and took a few quick shots. This was my favorite. I love the lady walking alone and the way the stairs frame her.
