I’m finally caught up with my MostlyFiction work and ready to concentrate on photography again… but its just too hot.  I think we are having our last gasp of heat, or so let’s hope. Our days have been around 111 -112 – 113F in the afternoon… It was already 89 when we woke up at 6am. The high temp isn’t the bad part; it’s the humidity!  What they say about dry heat is true… its hot but since the sweat is wicked away so quickly, it doesn’t feel as hot. I rather like that dry furnace=like heat.  But come Monsoon season, it’s like breathing in water.

So, I decided to go revisit my vacation photos to see what will fit a theme or two.  This is my nephew Matt and his friend, Eric,  cooling off in the pool.  In the second photo, Matt is the one sitting on the pool ladder.  He’s 13… one year younger than his sister Devon.
