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”.

The Capella Tower. It’s crazy that from where I was, some 30 stories up, I could hear music from the Basilica block party as well as chants from protesters protesting for the death of Philando Castile. Minneapolis (and the Twin Cities) is very alive right now. The more I’m surrounded by it though, the more I learn to love the city of Minneapolis.
