A Matter of Degrees

The weather for this Vancouver session was just exactly as predicted.

There were lots of clouds with an occasional sun ray peeking through. The wind was quite manageable at about 11 MPH.

The temperature was perfectly seasonable for March. It was a very pleasant 9 degrees. In fact, I was wearing just a fleece, probably only zipped up halfway. You could feel that Spring was just around the corner.

I think it’s presumptuous to go to someone else’s country and expect that they’ll understand every word I say. Ditto for trying to pay in my native currency.

I was not surprised that when making my plans for the shoot day that I’d be getting my forecast in Celcius. It’s not just Canada that uses Celcius. Mexico does too. Actually, every other country except the Bahamas uses Celcius.

Even in the US, anything that’s related to science or medicine is Celcius. That goes for civil aviation which is where I learned how to speak Celcius.

One thing that needs no translation is photography. It’s a universal language.
