one night in Chicago

Ok, They were taken over the years...

August 2nd, 2008 was a picture perfect night. So I went to John Hancock Tower to take pictures. Many of the daytime pictures were used in this thread: Chicago then and now.





That's what a city should look like at night:




Looking at west suburbs:


North Avenue Beach


famous MacDonald


Looking north - Lincoln Park just goes on and on..


More to come.

that is indeed what a city should look like at night. i would imagine that if you ever moved out to the suburbs you'd miss it too much.

This may sound like an odd question. But did you take these on a film camera and scan the photos? These are great shots, BTW!
