You have an "eye that is a true gift; thanks for sharing. I personally enjoyed the brute strength images of Chicago's muscular underbelly both little trafficed and little appreciated. Looking forward to more images from you.

Thank you for your kind words. I definitely do not deserve them. Chicago is a beautiful place and I am one lucky passer-by

Not for me, I'm not a big fan of the sail or parabolic shaped designs. But if somehow windows could be designed to look like that but appear normal to the occupants, now that would be cool.

A few more pics for your viewing pleasure

Thanks Frumie. The architecture certainly is magnificant. We could not have asked for a better building then Heritage, IMO.

Also, thanks to everyone else that has posted amazing pics here lately, including some fantastic aerials.

My friend lives on Clark and Fullerton. She's on the 11th floor. Unfortunately, it was so overcast none of the shots I took turned at all. I'll have to go back when it's sunny. It's a great view, though, w/ lots of potential.
