Chicago From the Aon Center

This thread will take a little time to load, but hopefully it's worth your patience. You might need to hit F5 once to refresh it. These shots were taken from the 54th and 75th floors of the Aon Center over the course of two months. I hope you enjoy.

Very impressive. What an amazing vantage point.

I couldn't help but notice your shot of Cabrini Green, I took a very simular shot from the rooftop of West Tower Marina City in August.

Thanks for showing these great shots!

This is probably one of the best Chicago picture threads I've seen in some time. Your pictures are really really vivid. Great work.
