Ferris wheel

What's summer without a ride on a ferris wheel? This 150 foot-high ferris wheel stands proudly at Chicago's Navy Pier, and provides magnificent views of the Chicago skyline and lakefront. The wheel was modeled after the very first ferris wheel which was built for Chicago's World's Fair in 1893. The lovely photo, almost painterly, is by Amy via Flickr.
