Skywatch Friday - Navy Pier

'Ferris Fun in the Sun'

A shot I took on our last full day in Chicago in June. I loved the contrast of the sedate Ferris Wheel, next to the high speed swing ride, with arms and legs flailing against the deep blue sky.

This picture is wonderful. I have been wanting to take a picture like this for a while, but I haven't had the chance.

Great idea for a sky shot. Love the action and fun in the photos. Sometimes we are sedate and sometimes we want to whirl :-) A nice life photo.

What a great picture! It's been years since I've been to Navy Pier. It would be nice to get back there (in the summer).
