It’s the Heat AND the Humidity

D20 8037 Its the Heat AND the Humidity

I’m in Tampa.  It’s hot.  It’s humid.  It’s even hotter and more humid than it has been in Ohio for the past few weeks.  This afternoon I helped unload my daughter’s stuff into her dorm room.  Did I mention that it’s hot and humid?  But that chore is done and she’s getting settled in for the school year.  It was nice to have the time to be with her on the drive down from Ohio.  And, since she is a senior, this may be the last time we get to do this.  But, she is talking about grad school, maybe in Florida, so there could be more trips like this in the future.

The next couple days will be nice and easy.  Brunch tomorrow with my daughter and her boyfriend, then shopping with my daughter for school supplies and books.  Then brunch on Sunday with an old friend who lives here.  On Monday the models start arriving.  There’s something planned to shoot pretty much every day from then until I leave on September 8. 

As I already mentioned, I have a lot of new stuff to post from before this trip, so here you have the first of those.  That’s Kelsey Dylan in the morning light at my studio.  You’ll be seeing more of Kelsey in the coming days.  And I’m likely to put up a favorite or two from what I shoot in the coming week and a half here in the tropical depths of Florida.  The light here today was perfect, with a nice overcast to make some beautiful light.  Of course, I had no model to work with today.  I hope my luck changes sometime while I’m here and I actually get a day or two of good light (ooops, I mean easy light) when I have a model available and shoots planned.  Stay tuned.

    Reminds me of my favorite joke.
    These two hippos were laying next to each other in a swamp. Motionless for hours. It was hot and humid. They lay there in this green ooze covered swamp right up to their eyeballs. Hot, muggy. All day they laid side by side motionless as the sun beat down on them. So damn humid the birds wouldn’t even fly. Motionless. Finally the one hippo turned to the other and said, “I just can’t get it through my head that it’s Tuesday.”

    Florida gets easier to live in from October to April. The humidity eases off the temperatures actually get quite pleasant. If you ever make a stop in Pensacola and want to shoot some photos, I’d be glad to introduce you to some of our local models and locations.

    Thanks Steven. I’ve been in Florida at all times of the year. It’s just since my daughter started college down here that I’ve had the joy of an annual trip here in August.

    My first experience with Florida many years ago was in the panhandle, in Panama City. I love that part of the state, though I miss the old days when there were little ’50’s motels along the beach and you could just show up in February before the spring break season started and pick the motel you liked and get a room on the beach for $35. I guess the huricanes eliminated all those old places and they’ve been replaced by high-rise condos.

    And thanks for the offer of help finding models. I may take you up on that. It’s past time for me to revisit the panhandle…but my daughter being in school in Tampa has pretty much taken my Florida trips in this direction.

    I can corroborate the heat and humidity of Florida. I was in Miami a few weeks ago and man was it sweltering! Beautifully sunny, yes. But really muggy. Hang in there Dave!
