LOL. Thanks. I work in the Aon Center (54th floor), which affords me north, south, and west views of the city. I'll eventually be moving to 300 N. Lasalle.

I was wondering about how you take such beautiful glare and light reflection free photos through glass windows. Whenever I try to take a picture through a glass window, there are always some reflections. I've experimented a bit and a found that they are significantly reduced if I don't hold the lens exactly parallel to the window, but tilt is down a bit, but even then there is still a bit of glare. What is your method?

Well, if you get your lense right up to the glazing, you'll eliminate those nasty reflects.

Chi649 where are you shooting this from? Great perspective. You look to be up 10 or so stories.

That's a really cool perspective. Soldier Field looks great in that photo.

You have a great vantage point as well. Are you in Museum Tower?

Went out on my bike to that huge open field south of Roosevelt Road and got a lot of great skyline shots.

I like this project, it is a good addition to Chicago. I like One Museum Park , but do any of you gentlemen think that from a aesthetic point of view One Museum Park need a Spire?

Spires look good on buildings like chrysler and the Empire state; chicago is not a spire city for we follow this old saying closer than anyone: form follows function. Sometimes they're nice to have, but we have a tradition here of making the most of our space, and not wasting money on spires unless they're absolutely necessary. I wish spires didn't make buildings taller, because it's unusable space that the likes of sullivan and wright would vomit at.

This is true. When New York was building fancy towers and turrets on top of its buildings in the late 1800s (Met Life, Woolworth), Chicago built giant bulky box-shaped office buildings like Marquette, Monadnock, and Santa Fe. We use all the space that's necessary.

I like that Sullivan quote. However one must remember that even Sullivan recognize the need for art in architecture. As for Wright, EVEN he designed a tower with a spire ( Illinois mile-high ) While it is true that many of the earliest building were box-shaped office buildings like Marquette, Monadnock, and Santa Fe. Many were not. If fact must tower built in the 1920-1930 were not all box. All had decor, setbacks and even spires. It was not until the 1955 that box-like tower would regain the height wars in Chicago. Form fallows Function did not really entered the city norm until the Inland Steel building. It was with the Second Chicago school ( International style) that box-like structure were the dominate form in the city. Most of the tallest building in the city had light beacons, clocks ,church steples and statues. London Guarantee Building, Chicago Temple Building, Palmolive Building, Chicago Board of Trade, Carbide & Carbon Building, American Furniture Mart, Hotel Intercontinental, Mather Tower, Wrigley Building and etc. I was born and raise here and I know that Chicago is an ever evolving city and through out it's history it not always had a square look and I'm pretty sure that in the future it will look even more different.
