Summer in the City. Another beautiful night…
and a video that shows off the beauty of our Chicago nights.
Here’s an incredible video showcasing our incredible City.

Click here for the full video from The Chicagoist.

According to…
The videographer behind some of our favorite time lapse videos showcasing Chicago’s seasons and skyline is back with another one: Max Wilson recently released a new time lapse focused on the city’s nighttime lights—including some epic fireworks shots.

The video, “Windy City Nights III,” shows off Chicago’s downtown skyline, fireworks over the lake, Michigan Avenue and more. As Wilson wrote of the video on Vimeo, the video included five years-worth of work, with a combination of favorite shots from past projects and newer, more recent shots.

“It’s a culmination of photography work in Chicago at night for the past 5 years,” he wrote. “My focus has always been on the city skyline and the architecture of the buildings. I really enjoy night time photography because it lends itself well to the timelapse technique. With all the movement and lights at night, it really is something special. You can really see the pulse of Chicago at night.”

Perhaps not the best day for a sunrise morning bike ride?…
good ride, but no sunrise!!! Plenty of clouds though…

Another serene sunrise to start off the day. With quiet reflections in the harbor, Ferris fun, silhouette spokes & a quick visit to the Goldstar Families Memorial & Park.

And a big sky show always deserves a big morning photo… or two!!!

One big cloud obscuring the sun. Sure, the sun tried.. and tried…
but never quite made the big sunrise break-through.
Good for the dramatic sky show though.

It was a late night drive back into the City after the fireworks in Chenoa last night. So much fun though to be greeted by the Chicago Skyline still shining in its festive glory.

No better way to start the holiday than sunrise at probably the most patriotic place in Chicago… Navy Pier. Great views of the City, the Lake and their majestic line-up of flags. Perfect for the day. Happy Fourth!!!

Clear skies with a cool breeze all the way down for a beautiful sunrise
on Chicago’s Navy Pier.

Looks like Navy Pier is gearing up for a busy Pride Weekend.

While the statue of Bob Newhart looks on… according to the Navy Pier website…
Designed for visitor participation, lie on the couch and pour out your troubles to bronze Bob Hartley, the 1970s psychologist from The Bob Newhart Show. Created by Studio EIS in New York, the life-sized statue was commissioned by nostalgia cable channel TV Land and unveiled to the City of Chicago on July 27, 2004 by the company’s president Larry W. Jones. In November 2004, the statue was moved to Navy Pier.
