As you can see, I went to the Air & Water show, an annual event that highlights the Great Inland Sea that is Lake Michigan. I haven't been in years, but due to my temporary unemployment status, I had the time to imbibe in my lust for all things that fly.
Not only was the weather PERFECT, my friend got us access to a balcony, 16 floors up, looking over the "little people" crowded around Lake Shore Drive. It was possibly the most fun I have had holding a camera and keeping my pants on in years.
There were more impressive displays of military might, but I neglected to bring my long range zoom lens (stupid!) and I was content to simply watch it all with my naked eye, and busted ears. Those jets are crazy loud. And fucking amazing.
