An AP Photographer Covers the Heat Wave in Sizzling Phoenix

From an AP story by Matt York headlined “Covering the heat wave in sizzling Phoenix, an AP photographer recounts a scare from heat exhaustion”:

Heat never scared me before.

I’ve spent 23 years covering Phoenix as a photographer for The Associated Press, shooting golf tournaments, baseball games and other outdoor sporting events, the city’s growing homeless population, immigration and crime.

And, of course, heat.

Like most people around here, I talk about temperatures being in the teens as if it’s a given that people know to always put a one in front of that number.
