We had quite a short but powerful thunderstorm in Brooklyn tonight. We've been getting some very heavy weather for New York lately.
I took some pictures out my back window.
I love thunderstorms, at least when they don't hurt people and cause damage, and I'm not walking home in them.
I share the joy of Parvati in the 18th century Rajput miniature below. Thunder and lightning are the percussion section of life, and a great pleasure.
Everybody in New York seems to have a camera, and some of them are professionals. Here's what having a really good spot and knowing what you are doing with a camera can produce. This is tonight's storm, a photo posted within minutes of it passing.
