minneapolis at night

Last night we had the first thunderstorm of the year! …and I managed to capture this bolt o’ lightnin’.

Semi-interesting fact— Newspapers in the 1800′s often used terms other than “lightning” when describing it.  Their alternate terms included:  electrical bombardment”, “electrical pyrotechnic” or a “peculiar pyrotechnic display”.


I don’t show many people in my pix, but the work of humanity is all around in them like fingerprints. I’m looking for interesting light,color, shadow and pattern in the world that we collaborate on with nature and randomness. It’s good to find sources of light and trace their effects in the general darkness, like betting on the underdog.
Is that a squirrel?
