This shot has sort of been in my mind since I started the lyrics project. It’s simple, effective and all I had to do was wait for the right weather. And there was the problem. The right weather. Fog with leaves on the ground was harder than it sounds. Other issues are the obvious ones, weather right – no model, weather right – park packed as a weekend, model and park time perfect – weather wrong (regularly) etc etc. As it was, the Council were on their little ride on mulchers destroying the leaf fall so we had to turn up, plonk ourselves in their way and go for it! (The kind maintenance man mulched elsewhere for 15 mins!)
The essential elements for this shot, other than the leaves, were, a path preferably with a split ahead, benches, fog and darker light.
