Full Moon over the Mississippi


This full moon lighting up the Mighty Mississippi is also known as a Full Buck Moon. Minnesota State Parks and Trails posted on Facebook that it’s named for the antlers that bucks are beginning to grow. It’s also sometimes called the Thunder Moon or the Hay Moon. The latter named for farmers who getting their hay cut and inside before those storms.

Longfellow365 Lunch


Megan, Emily, and Kristen, three of the regular Longfellow365 photographers this year, gathered at Gandhi Mahal Restaurant- Minneapolis MN, along with myself, for a lunch to review the first 6 months of our work. I took this photo of them in front of the restaurant before we went our separate ways to take photos. We’ll each submit our favorite photo from the day and post on Facebook tomorrow.
