July 16

It started off dull grey today but there was no rest for air conditioners. By the afternoon the sun came back to remind us all where we really are, under her thumb. Baking in her 79 degree rays. Framed (or trapped) by palm trees and dirty buildings. Giving over our precious energy life force to UVA/UVB light.

The straightaway roads like Brand Blvd and First Street offer great views of the distinct tonality of our great sunny city. Heat from the grimy streets and sidewalks creates a grey tone around the high-rises and as you look up to the wide open sky there is a flawless gradation from white-grey to grey to grey-blue to blue. A perfect mirror of the morning to afternoon transition. Such is nature’s light on industry.
