Under the Bridge

This was taken yesterday, July the 4th, 2017, in Chicago, IL.  The Chicago Tribune said it was the worst July 4th in recent Chicago history.  Gun violence is rampant and murder is far too common.  The vast majority of the trouble is in the south part of the city. This bridge is on the north side of the city.

My son and I were walking along the side of the Chicago River which takes you under several bridges when I took this photo.  It’s a beautiful river walk. I had no idea the violence that was occurring a few miles to the south until I was back home in Arkansas.


Have a great day!

  3. Lovely shots. Often, I am in that exact part of Chicago and have never experienced any danger. I guess it is important to know the spots to avoid in any city.
