HOT! It was so very, very hot this day. The thermometer was no indication of how incredibly sweltering it was here. For instance, the thermometer read 89 in the morning, but the heat index was at 105 … ONE HUNDRED AND FIVE!! Of course, as luck would have it, I had to spend the vast majority of the day out in the sauna they call weather here. I started out the day shooting portraits for an ad, then I shot a house being moved through downtown. This was followed by football practice at a local high school then photos of that same school’s newly renovated elementary school library. This was followed by a photo for a group of horse riders who made a charitable donation to a local group (to be used for Camp Sunshine … for those of you who have been following my blog). I then went from there to shoot another high school’s football practice. I was beat by the end of the day and dehydrated to the point of cramping (I was just unable to keep up with the amount of water I would have had to be consuming to keep hydrated). Welcome to a Mississippi summer!

A whole lot of driving this day! My photographing for the day started out with covering a jack-knifed truck on the Interstate. The rest of my day was spent driving all over the place with a writer for a couple assignments. I had to drive out to a “local” high school for media day to shoot some portraits and get some head shots for possible future stories. From there we went up to another county’s courthouse to document a Tuskegee airman receiving a Congressional Gold Medal (technically a bronze replica as the Tuskegee Airmen were awarded the gold medal as a group, so the original gold medal resides in the Smithsonian). A cool day with a LOT of driving (over 120 miles all told), but I got to shake hands with a Tuskegee Airman … Pretty sweet!
