A peculiar thing was happening just before the Chicago bridges were raised. Being the first time in 2013 that the Michigan Avenue bridge was raised during the week, there was a little bit of a delay.
My back was facing the window while talking with one our editors, Leigh Hanlon. He stared at window confused by the traffic patterns happening around the bridge.
“What’s happening out there?”
The road was blocked off and an ambulance was trying to come through. Just before the bridge was being raised an ambulanced needed to quickly dart across the bridge. It made a safe journey across, as did all the pedestrians, and then the bridge was raised for the waiting boats.
Then I hopped up on my desk to take this HDR photo with my iPhone. An annual tradition.
Summer has officially started in Chicago!
