Downtown Chicago views
There has been a great full moon lately. I actually dusted out the tripod for this shot of the moon over River North.
This shot was taken on one of the very cold nights recently looking at the Sears Tower and the newly christened Chase building (formerly Bank One).
Here is a view looking down on Navy Pier, lit up for the winter.
This is a photo of the Spire under construction (the new 150 story high rise being built in Chicago). You can see part of the site where the cranes are on the lower left corner of the photo. The Spire's lot is unbelievably small; when we are driving down Illinois avenue towards Lake Shore Drive during the trip to the Bears game I point out the tiny site and people can't believe that a 150 story building is going there. Check out the site for the Spire and then click on "panorama" to see the view from 140 stories... it is amazingly high up there. You need to see it to really "get" how tall the building is.
