Pictures of Chicago's Tall Ships Festival and Air Water Show
This brings the visitor to my home- sweet Chicago, and my passion for creating images of Chicago. Featured are panoramic views of Lake Michigan during the annual Air and Water Show in Chicago. Most images feature the US Airforce Thunderbirds and Navy Blue Angels performing.

Now, you can enjoy the show highlights without the crowds, jet roar and parking fees.

Both flight teams did fly overs North Avenue Beach, buzzed the Hancock Building, and excited the crowd with thrilling death defying formations and stunts. A high speed telephoto lens helped freeze the action.

Images 17 through 20 feature Tall Ships as seen during the August, 2013 Tall Ship Festival In Chicago.

Image 17 features Friends Good Will-USA. Michigan Maritime Museum launched this 101 foot square topsail sloop replica of the 1813 man-o-war in 2004. Commander Oliver Hazard Perry’s famous dispatch “We have met the enemy and they are ours…” went on to reference a merchant sloop turned man-o-war in the Battle of Lake Erie, September 10, 1813.

Great summer memories. These photos make great decorations for offices, waiting rooms or the home. Some useful Chicago web sites are as follows;
