In March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic was just taking hold and Seattle was shutting down. I wandered out on a rainy night to snap a few photos of the largely abandoned Pike Place Market and try out a new lens filter (Tiffen 52mm Black Pro-Mist 1⁄4). It gives the photos a moody glow, although I discovered in some cases incoming light bounced off the lens, back to the inside surface of the filter and then back again toward the lens, resulting in an inverted double image (somewhat visible in the first photo). Worth the trouble though; I love the effect.
