As seen around … Chicago

This from Steve Redick:

Had a great opportunity to take a boat cruise through the locks and into the Chicago river and got some decent images of the 2 big fireboats at the dock … old 58 and newer Engine 2. The Wheatley has various shades of red and violet colort due to some kind of issue with the paint so it’s not your eyes.

3-11 Alarm fire in Chicago, 7-20-16

This from Josh Boyajian:

Here are shots I took Wednesday during the 3-11 alarm at 2036 w 21st place. I arrived after most of the fire was knocked in the original fire building along with the exposures. However, the attic of the coach house behind the original fire building got going well into the fire. I believe there were six hand lines, one deck gun, and one tower ladder working throughout this job. Enjoy

Chicago Fire Boat – Engine 2

This from Steve Redick:

this week I was able to knock a big item off my bucket list … to see the airshow from a boat. I gotta say it was an amazing opportunity, and although photo conditions were tough at best I was able to get some photos from a perspective many never see. We had a close encounter with Engine 2. I gotta say it’s looking very beat up. The paint is fading and all different colors. Got some images of the water display as well as some good views of all sides of the vessel. All of the boat images can be seen here:

Chicago Fire Boat – Engine 2

This from Jamie Moncrief:

Wanted to share these fire boat photos I took on Sat. Dec 28, 2013 – while walking along the river, we spotted the Chicago Engine 2 fire boat “Christopher Wheatley” heading out  – thirty minutes later, we were able to see her on Lake Michigan from the top of the Hancock Building.

Best wishes to her and her crew!
