If there's a storm over Dallas, local photographer Justin Terveen is spending the night chasing it, and we're spending the morning chasing Terveen down so we can deliver his camera magic unto you, the Slightly Damp Friends of Unfair Park.

Terveen reports that the shot up top is of DPD's communication tower. There's another below. He's the Annie Leibovitz of lightning, this guy, only without the crippling debt. Praise and a heavy jacket be to him.

I'd be much more impressed if he took the picture while standing IN the swimming pool.  Though I'm glad he didn't.

Why can't we just harvest that energy?  just sayin'...

Takes some nerve to climb onto roof tops while it's lightning.  But, as usual, his results are superb.

Unfortunately we ever know when or where it's ever gonna strike.  Though, my gut feeling says that huge radio tower has pretty good odds.  If we could somehow harness this energy and channel it into the flux capacitor......it just might work.

Well in this case I think it's from his hidden Exposition Park Lair. I can't say any further about the location lest you discover him as his mild-mannered alter ego.

What's the problem?  It's a perfectly cromulent word.

Actually, it's the rooftop pool at 2220 Canton - across from the Farmers Market.  I used to live there, and usually stayed away from the roof during thunderstorms.

Ah, I see what you did there. A neologism for a neologism. Nice.

 So "neologism" is the fancy term for "somebody that watches The Simpsons"?
