We recently heard a joke of an urban legend, stating that women who swim in Lake Michigan get mysteriously pregnant. Obviously a falsehood, but just the thought of those words being even half true have made us even less likely to go for a dive in the not-so-pristine waters of our beaches' shores. That said, we love taking a stroll along the paths of the lake, getting in a bit of exercise and enjoying some prime people-watching opportunities, as thousands of Chicagoans descend upon the sand. Flickr user kudzuplanet hauled herself up to the top of the Hancock to get this fantastic shot (one of our all-time FPF faves), managing to enjoy a great scene at a decidedly safe distance away from the water.

Focus, People, Focus is a weekly photography feature that features a photograph taken by a reader of the site. If you'd like a chance to have your photo featured on Friday as part of Focus, People, Focus, upload your photo to Flickr and tag it with "Chicagoist".
