Ailsa’s travel theme challenge this week on Where’s my backpack http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/07/06/night/ is Night. My choice for this one was easy since  I usually take terrible night pictures and most of them have been consigned to the scrap heap, leaving only a handful worth sharing.

A hot summer night in Chicago and the kids are waiting for a jet of cooling water to gush from the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park. When it arrives there are shrieks of joy as they take advantage of this outpouring then, as the water subsides, they stand around and wait for the next dousing.
