Slice of Life: The Fountain of You


Buckingham Fountain

Chicago is a city in a garden, and that garden’s city has a number of great fountains.  The big bad daddy of them all is, of course, Buckingham Fountain.  Broad enough to entertain throngs of tourists, and bold enough to set the stage for Al Bundy.

This photo of the behemoth bubbler was captured by our own Bill Motchan, in a 35-second exposure that turned the spatters and gurgles into smooth flowing ribbons of liquid silk.
