077.100 Caity

It had been a very hot day by Calgary standards. 34 degrees Celsius is usually weather that calls for shorts, t-shirts, shade, or a beach, but I was at a corporate event wearing jeans and spent the entire afternoon in the open sun while watching the Calgary Stampede rodeo. After cooling down in one of the air conditioned exhibition halls, I made my way toward the evening’s event. By this time, the sun was a little lower in the sky and the shade of the buildings provided some relief as I walked. As I was passing through a train station I spotted two well dressed ladies walking toward me. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to have a lengthy conversion with either of them as they were waiting for a train. The sun was causing some lighting challenges: although weakened by the haze of forest fires nearby, it was bearing directly down on us. The upside, however, was that the haze diffused the light and gave it a golden glow almost like a sunset.

This is Caity. She contacted me a few days later for a copy of the photos, and a few months after that I found out that she had Tweeted her picture and the story about meeting me. It’s always fun when the other party really seems to enjoy our encounter and it becomes an interesting story they can tell about their day!
