February can be mild or cold year to year but the sun is always at the same angle. Low in the sky but rising. The guitar player was strumming comfortably in his sleeveless shirt one mid-February Day in 2019. I half expected to see him wearing sandals, too.

It was a lovely, balmy day. Perfect for getting outside.

Fast forward two years to February 15th 2021.

Same spot. Same day of the year, but nobody outside making music. In fact, nobody outside at all.

It is a marked difference in temperature and setting but interestingly, the light is the same. Cloudy winter light is cloudy winter light. I’ll have to visit this spot some summer cloudy day and see if the light is different.
