Man I hope to see Chicago someday soon. That 35 West Wacker building is pretty cool.

I love this center building.

These to towers are among my favorite in all of Chicago

Trump Tower is very tall and looking very slender and beautiful! Chicago truly has some of thee best architecture of any city in the world!

And THIS shot is my favorite urban/canyon shot of Chicago I've ever seen at ground level! I love it!

Awesome! I love Chicago! One of the USA's best all-around cities for sure!
You did a great job with those shots!
