To “celebrate” our current minor heat wave, my friend Ken posted a fine short video today. Not to be outdone, I created one of my own using my favorite hot weather related song “The Heat is On”, by Glenn Frey. The song, of course, was used in the movie Beverly Hills Cop quite a few years back.
My problem, though, was finding some images suitable for that theme. Turned out to be not so easy. I rarely go out to take pictures when it’s hot here in western NY – it’s always too damn humid. So I just don’t have any available images from around good old Rochester. But I have taken quite a few in the southwest while walking around in 90 degree (or hotter) heat. Nothing like hiking around under a brutal sun in air so dry your skin starts to crackle after a while.
And these images are all in bright, glorious color. I mean, how do you represent heat without using the color “red”?
Anyway, even if you don’t care for the pictures, enjoy the music. Hopefully, in the comfort of AC.
