The skies have been a little bit hazy, thanks to a cover of thin, gauze-like clouds but the dry heat continues. The light makes some pictures, particularly those taken over water, come out as though sepia tinted.Cheyenne stayed home, snoring in the air conditioned house while I took off on a job, watering the boy's plants on Sugarloaf Key. They are freezing in Missouri, reporting cold temperatures (the 50's) and gray skies and they are ready to be home. In these parts one is supposed to photograph the motorcycle in an exotic locale, palms, water, islands and so forth in the background. I wanted the Bonneville with it's new utilitarian saddlebags to be posed industrially with a chunk of guard rail for background. I couldn't resist the dreamy seascapes alongside the highway so I pulled over and watched a couple not catching fish for a few moments.
Cars emanate boredom on the highway, rightly or wrongly. I'd never have stopped to take pictures at random had I been driving the Ford.
