Clouds sweeping over Fall River

10pm on an unsuspecting Thursday. I took out the recycling and noticed some seriously dramatic clouds sweeping through the sky under the moon. I grabbed my equipment and took to the street with my slippers on like an old man. The newly renovated Cornell Lofts are basically my front yard.

In this case, not many people were around to witness the majesty of the light display the folks … Continue reading Tree of Light
