Fog on Hampstead Heath, London, England

Scene from Peak District

George P. Landow, Fog on Hampstead Heath, London, England. 1964.

Contax IIa. Plus-X in Diafine. I took this photograph during my Fulbright year in London, when I lived in back of the Bull and Bush at Wildes Farm, the center of which was a fifteenth-century cottage. Walking home from the Hampstead Tube, I often encountered thick fogs, though the days of pollution-produced killer pea-soup fogs had already gone. The Heath was so heavily used that in the woods the ground between trees seemed bald and bare, but the fog made it seem magical.
