This is what the Chicago Air and Water Show Spectators look like when you are standing from the Hancock Observatory :) Title inspired by that reaaaaally old documentary video that almost every American had to watch in their middle school science class. If you havent seen the Powers of Ten by Charles & Ray Eames, check it out!

Wish I could have been to the show (even if it looks a little mobbed). Hope to see more pictures from you guys of the event!

Wonderful series of shots, the last one is my favorite but they are all beautiful. They almost look like paintings.

The third shot is so awesome! Amazing how regularly spaced aparte everyone is. Did you have trouble crowding into the hancock observatory with the show going on? was it packed?

I have been watching your blog for months and haven't missed a day. Honestly. Your photography is Sandtastic! I love it. I had to comment today because that 3rd photo has inspired me to paint again after putting down my brushes over 15 years ago. Thank you!
