Blinds shielding from the afternoon sun heat

This day we did not feel like doing much outdoors. Temperatures have been high, at least, too high for High Command to enjoy being outdoors. For me, well, they're a flashback of more than 20 years ago when I used to live in the northern part of Mexico... dry summer heat.

But here humidity levels stay relatively moderate, not as high as closer to the Gulf, so still manageable at these temperatures. Especially if you've grown in the area and are not bothered by a mere 37°C.

Still, we feel surprised when we see fair-skinned people walking outside, or jogging, in harsh daylight. Unless they slather a ton of sunblock, I can't explain how they manage to retain sun burnt-free bodies... genes I guess!

This shot was taken at a small Mexican restaurant we picked for dinner... bit of a mistake as Mexican food can be quite heavy, especially for dinner! Which resulted in a rough night.

Hopefully, you've had much better luck starting off your week!

Thank you Heike! Since most of the shot are vertical or horizontal lines, the diagonals tend to draw out the eye (totally not on purpose hahaha)

Nice one. I also like to avoid the warmest part of the day when we are in the tropics. Love Mexican food and yes it can be heavy.

Thank you Peter! It reminds me of those moody shots from diners in movies... sort of very out-of-the-way places lost somewhere on an old highway hahaha.
