Caught Heat, Everything Burns





It was 44 (111) degrees celcius today in Sydney.

Reports say that it's the second hottest day recorded here, but who really cares about such statements? I took this photo fifteen minutes ago and the heat was still trapped in everything outside. Stand on the pavement in bare feet and your soles burn. Movement is sweat. Birds make fading chirps. Old Air conditioners stutter out after twenty minutes. You wouldn't dream of touching another person. Sure, it gets hotter elsewhere in the country, it gets hotter elsewhere in the world, but none of that much matters when you're freezing drinks cause the fridge isn't good enough.
