2012/217: Accidental Silhouette

This is Buckingham Fountain in Chicago, Illinois. I’ve always wanted to see it up close, but had completely forgotten about it on our recent trip. We were going to another destination (to be revealed in my next post) and I had no idea that we would pass right by Buckingham Fountain…even if it was a couple of traffic lanes away.
I was taking pictures of the Chicago skyline as we were driving (I wasn’t the one driving!!) when I spotted the fountain. Of course by then we were already right there and I had no time to adjust the settings on my camera…..I didn’t even have time to focus, and just snapped a couple of shots out of the passenger side window, hoping they would turn out. I would say they did, wouldn’t you? 😉

  1. I would agree! Well done, especially under those conditions. Buckingham Fountain is one of my faves. (I used to live in the Chicago area.)

    • You did?? So did I! From 1987 until 1995.
      Where did you live? I was in Lansing for about 6 months and then in Indiana (unincorporated Calument Township…with a Gary mailing address 😛 )
