Although it has been really warm here in Chicago the past few weeks, I still yearn for the summer temps. Here are some kids getting doused in front of one of the walls of the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park last summer. I meant to post this several months ago during a sweltering spell, but I didn't get a chance to. It's 27 degrees out today; now's as good a time as any!

This would be a great poster. You captured the moment.

That is such a great shot. I don't get those chances living in the rural area I live in, so these kind of shots always fascinate me.

Yes the cold temps are moving in again for a few days. Just cold enough to make me miss the warm days of summer. I love the two boys who took a step forward to get that extra dousing.

You held back a jewel like this! What else you got in the vault?

VERY impressive. I really like how the lad in the red shorts anchors the image. A wonderful image to remind us of what we should consider the perfect day!
