It's fairly common for tourists visiting this city to be blindsided by the weather: Montreal can get very hot during the summer months. And as soon as the temperatures rise, the humidity usually settles in as well, creating what can quickly become a pretty awful mix of radiated heat vs heavy/damp conditions.
I was giving two workshops last week, both to photographers visiting the country. Very enjoyable few days with great conversations and street shooting but man...it got tough. On Tuesday, with Chris, we ended up walking over 20k before the day was done and already the conditions were hard to endure. But it was still somewhat dry and there was a mild breeze providing some comfort. On Thursday however...broiled and grilled. My client that day—Rafael—was in town from Mexico and the sheer intensity of the heat left him more than a little surprised. We should've been drinking Sangria on a terrasse in the shade...not walking around with cameras dangling around our increasingly sunburnt necks (well, mine anyway).
It's better now. Still feels like summer but a bit less killer.
