I absolutely love living in Illinois.  It continues to offer so many adventures and photographic opportunities.  Below are a variety of locations, including a boat ride in August 2012, where I ventured down to Navy Pier for the 54th annual Air and Water Show on Lake Michigan - from Fullerton Ave to Oak Street Beach.  North Ave Beach hosted the main show area.  I missed most of the water show, but it was the Blue Angels and air tricks that I had come to see.
