Street Photography: Heat on the Street

As I described in my previous post, last week’s heat wave made its presence known on the faces of New Yorkers.

Some, like me, can manage the temperatures, which ranged from about 95 to 97 degrees and having a “real feel” of at least 100 degrees. It’s not pleasant, but I can deal with it much better than freezing weather.

Others, like the poor fellow in the photograph above, walked the streets in a haze as thick as the enveloping humidity – eyes down, head down, shoulders down. His hand clutches a water bottle with a spare tucked away in his back pack.

It was not until tonight that the heat broke when countless bottles worth of water would rain down in an intense thunderstorm with raging flash floods.
