“These days we all play cool, calm and collected
Why, our lips could turn blue just shooting the breeze”
I was walking north by the river today, after a Lightroom tutoring session, thinking about scale which is the weekly photo challenge word of the week. It was a really cold walk. About 27 degrees with a 20 mph wind seeming to come straight downriver from the north.
I realized that here was a perfect example of scale in a oblique way. Our response to temperature is based on the scale we are used to. I thought it was frigid. When I lived in Boston I would have said it was pretty cold but when I lived in St. Paul I would have thought it was a pretty nice winter day.
When I lived in LA I would have thought it was the apocalypse.
