Chicago Architecture 1

2015-10-12 Chicago Architecture 7

No American city center has architecture as interesting and varied as Chicago. Mrs. C and I got up early yesterday morning and caught the first-of-the-day boat ride on the branches of the Chicago River run by the Chicago Architecture Foundation

If you find yourself in this city, the CAF water, walking and bus tours are a don't miss experience. Since our first child went to the University of Chicago almost 20 years ago (and then four years later the second, leading to a search for a bumper sticker saying My Money And My Children Go To The University Of Chicago), we've been on many of their tours. Never tire of them.

Lots more of these pix. It's getting pretty late Monday as I write this so explanation later.

Greats shots here. I did a Chicago tour once but saw mostly all of Frank Lloyd Wright works and the Millennium park . For more impressions I have to come back sometime.

My favs: first one showing the building against that sky, and that 'going up' the Trump Tower.

The first one's my favourite. What a skyline!

Luis Gomez said...

Such a great city to photograph!

Sure is a famous skyline. We don't have this type of architecture/buildings in Sweden.

I took the same tour/boat ride in August. Awesome.
