Storm troopers. Took the train home from work during the storm the other day, and stopped at a few random spots to take in the snow scenes. This is probably the densest part of a very urban university but the whiteout makes it feel like you’re in the middle of nowhere. • • • •

waqonthewildside: Quite satisfied by the timing of this candid

Quite satisfied by the timing of this candid shot. Made a stop at the Guthrie Theater after my run this afternoon and saw this group of kids checking out the amber room. They were all looking out the window, but just as I discreetly clicked, this kid turned his head towards me. Turns out his name is Leo, and he is an exchange student from Italy and lives in Mankato, MN. Leo and his friends were visiting Minneapolis for an event. • • • • • _forum_2168

I am America. I am the part you won't recognize. But get used to me. Black, confident, cocky; my name, not yours; my religion, not yours; my goals, my own; get used to me. - Muhammad Ali Louisville native Muhammad Ali would have turned 76 today. Louisville Water Tower photographed last month- unarguably the blingest water tower I ever saw. • • • •

When I visit a new city, I try to check out the local public library ( ), the central transit station and a house of worship - even if they are not listed in any travel guides. I feel visiting those places say a lot about a community. What’s your must-visit spot in a new city? • • • • • love _symmetry _forum_2127 tn

waqonthewildside: One good thing about living in Minnesota, you

One good thing about living in Minnesota, you can travel anywhere in the winter and it is likely going to be much warmer than home. It was 10°F in Chicago when I took this photo yesterday, and -15°F (-27°C) in Minneapolis at the time. Let’s pledge to continue the good fight in the new year but not fail to notice and celebrate the bright side, however small. Happy New Year.🎊🎆 • • • • 2018 _chicago _forum_2125
