Thematic. In rough shape. Here.
(Though, if we're going to be super-analytical about it, it's a safe bet that I wasn't perched on an orbiting bird, and my rent-a-Cessna-for-aerial-photography budget for that month had been sadly depleted by the time I took this particular photo.)
Whatever its scale may be, this one keeps popping into my head thanks to the historic heat wave that's rolling across the U.S. southwest. Nay, make that much of the U.S. And I'm guessing, soon, the Great White North.
It doesn't matter where you stand in the great global warming debate. You can think it's scientific fact or government-funded conspiracy, but it's hard to deny the blast furnace-like kick in the teeth that awaits you when you step outside to walk the dog in the morning. And if you're stuck in the brutal heat, I hope you're able to find refuge from it before long.
Your turn: how do you beat the heat?
