very impressive. The atmosphere in the picture and the color of the clouds makes it only better.

Its on the outskirt of the cluster of skyscrapers in Chicago actually.

If you look at the photo below all the taller towers are forming around the cluster like guards. Sears Tower, Aon Tower, John Hancock center and chicago spire will become a new guard soon.



Its quite interesting actually.

That image is pretty dated... Lots of towers are missing. Millennium park is not even up yet.

Nice timing on that reply ron-e

I know this is out of topic too, but pending means when something is waiting upon its confirmation or decision. Is it waiting for new contractors to sign at the moment? or something else?

I just wish Trump's entire form were visible from this vantage point. I'll have to find another parking structure a bit more to the north.
