Focus, People, Focus: Top-10 Photos of 2006

By Joanna Miller in Miscellaneous on Dec 22, 2006 4:36PM

A Chicagoist without photos would be a very dull Chicagoist indeed. And many of the photos we feature here come from readers. This year, more than 12,000 Flickr photos were tagged with “Chicagoist” – everything from concerts and events to architecture and nature shots to random found objects and people. We want to thank everyone who contributed photos in 2006, and we hope you’ll continue to contribute in 2007.

To look back at the year in pictures, we’ve compiled 10 of our favorite images, and the countdown starts today with No. 10. We’ll post one image every day from now until New Year’s Eve, and the photographer with the No. 1 photo will be able to choose a prize from the Chicagoist store.


No. 10 is “manic attackers” by runjenrun01.

And, really, what’s not to love about these badass roller derby women?

Much thanks to all the Chicagoist writers who voted on this list.
