And he had good taste in cameras too.

Just sayin ...

Reminds me of my time in Cyprus, when only English tourists would walk the coastal trail in the burning sun, carrying a small bottle of water and not wearing a shirt or a hat. All sane people were inside, under a beach umbrella or at least hiding in the shade...

I'll beat the heat by reading TOP. Mike is cool.

I had many good years with s Rolleiflex, in my opinion one of the high points of camera design.

Today, Wed July 17, it was 76 degrees F and 76% humidity at 7:30am, here in Huntington Beach, CA. 76F is nice, 76% humidity ain't!

When I read Mad Dogs and Englishman I can't help to think of this early 70's performance By Joe, Leon and friends. One of my favorite live performances.

RIP Joe Cocker.

During my childhood in Alice Springs, in the centre of Australia, airconditioners were an unheard of luxury. In summer the temperature regularly got up to around 105 Farenheit (we used the system of the imperialists back then). The bath was kept full of water - but long immersions were not needed, a quick in and out, minimal drying, and the subsequent evaporation kept you cool.
