Chicago Architecture 2

2015-10-12 Chicago Architecture 12

A lot of good architectural photography is done in black and white. Taking a stab at it here. The pictures include some Chicago icons. Above the Cloud Gate sculpture in Millennium Park, generally known as The Bean, surrounded by visitors as always. Next to last, the bridge on Lake Shore Drive crossing the Chicago River. The tall building in the bottom photo is the Willis Tower, originally the Sears Tower. In a sense, it is the tallest building in the US. The Freedom Tower in New York is higher only if you include the broadcast spire. Willis has 10 more occupied floors.

Keep lookin' up BC. You're giving us some fine images of the Windy City skyline.
*Tough to have such a strong 100 win season and see it unravel this way. Keep lookin' up. Good thing you are not a HEAVY drinking man.

While I like the colour shots, I really love these black and wbite ones, they are fabulous. And like I said on FB, a bean would have been wonderful in the palace gardens instead of 'the queen's vagina'.

I expect it's probably impossible to photograph the Bean without people in the pic!

On yes I see what you mean Bob, loved the last post but the b&w is spectacular! I'd like a'bean' such as this in the Cultural Centre here, the photographic opportunities abound!
