Alabama HOT!


Last Sunday morning as I was giving my blog friend Daryl, one last shoot around town,  before she jetted off to cooler climes, we stopped first on Morris Avenue. It's one of Birmingham's most photogenic historic places... cobblestones and all.  I've been there many times with photography classes and really thought I'd seen it all. Happily I looked at it with new eyes and found some nice ones. This vintage Birmingham News/ Post Herald thermometer caught my eye, and was especially significant, since Daryl was wilting in our humid temps as I was shooting!

34C in Mayence yesterday. Don't know how much that is in feet and inches

plus de 30 sur la region parisienne, ce matin un peu de fraicheur, j'espere que cela va durer

isn't it amazing how, when we travel around with someone seeing our familiar sights for the first time, we can share the newness with them and see with fresh eyes?

Jealous I missed that shot ... its only 71 here today w/o any humidity .. alas it will be steamy on the Fourth!

Excellent!

Love this old thermometer! Boy is it hot here, too. We drove through Birmingham last week and it reminded me of Little Rock, like a sister city. Also, along the I22 corridor was so beautiful!

Daryl, Girl you don't have to rub it in.

jb,
So do you AC to help you out with your "heat wave"?

Montreal, oh that's noting for B'ham

Chieftess, snow in June 'ain't right"!

Thanks Luis!

Olivier, trop chaud à Paris! OUI!

BC, you are so right. I got a lot of shots on Sunday and I've been to all the places I took Daryl a million times.

Oh, c'mon, it gets that hot in NYC - concrete jungle, heat island and all that. It's supposed to be right about this hot when I get there Saturday.
