MLMM Photo Challenge — The Fog

Reliable information about the thick fog that had enveloped the city was scarce. Reports from various media outlets were contradictory, some saying it was radioactive or toxic, others saying it was harmless water vaper, and still others calling it otherworldly.

The governor had activated the National Guard and the president was even weighing calling up some Army Reserve units to maintain stability, since unexplainable phenomena like these have a propensity to affect people in unanticipated ways and to even cause a panic.

Ultimately those who survived the fog learned that it had descended upon the entire planet and the term that they used, spoken in hushed tones when talking about it from deep within the underground safe zones, was “apocalyptic.”

      Your take focused on the romantic aspect of the picture. Mine on the eerie aspect of it.
