Navy Pier Summer Fireworks 2013

Aside from the Chicago Air & Water Show, another thing that I always look forward to during the during the summer time is the fireworks display at the Navy Pier. (There is also one during the New Year, but nothing beats outdoor photography during the warm weather.)

Anyway, I trekked towards Navy Pier one Wednesday evening. Before the fire works display, I took some photos of the Pier at night. It's a sight to behold, and the downtown skyline is sublime!

A few minutes before the event, I set out my tripod, camera and camera remote. Then, right after I finished setting up my gear, a gentleman nicely asked me to take a picture of him, his wife, and their cute kids. So, fearing that someone might knock over my tripod and send my camera plunging towards Lake Michigan, I detached my camera and placed it back in my bag. I took two photos of the family. :)

When I set my camera back on the tripod, that’s when it hit me that I might not be in a very good position. I told myself that I will be very pissed if the fireworks is to my left: I'll have a lady's arm on my shots.

Guess what happened?

Anyway, I was still able to make wonderful shots and I felt elated whenever the lady quickly takes a shot and take a long time looking at her phone! And I'm happy to share them here.

It makes me sad that summer is about to end. I do love winter (yeah, I am one of those people...) but saying goodbye to all these outdoor activities is really hard to take...
