looking east from South Loop Chicago. 11-shot panorama (no HDR). missed a couple of shots to get a complete pano, I will most likely go back and redo this one - hopefully during more dramatic sky conditions as well.

Of note, the white house towards the center of the picture is the Clarke House, which is regarded as the oldest surviving building in Chicago.

What you see in the middle with the spotlights surrounding it is the ramp leading to the lower level of Wacker drive - these are the scenes with the trucks going down/up the ramps and the related chase scenes.

Figure I'd share this here, since I have posted many of my Chicago shots. One of my submissions made the cover of this 160-page book, which is conducted by CBS Chicago. There were some 27,800 submissions total, from around 2500 submitters. Sounds like this book is pretty nice, not even talking about the cover.

They supposedly showed the photo on CBS news at 5, 6 and are also showing at 10PM (Central Time USA), tune in if you have a chance!
