The Friday File – There’s, “Big John” again!

Chicago Skyscrapers

As you can tell I’ve been on quite a Chicago skyline kick lately, haven’t I?  I find this the most architecturally diverse city I have ever encountered.  This time we are seeing the John Hancock Building from a much more competitive perspective; that is, a higher one.  Instead of looking up we are looking out and over to see this giant yet again prominently standing in our view.  This photo was taken from the Willis Tower on the SkyDeck floor.

And of course you can see Lake Michigan in the background blending in with the sky as it so often seems to do.

Enjoy the view, everyone!

    Fantastic view, Cher. Love it. The Chicago skyline is amazing, especially from this view. What a photographic capture you have accomplished. Great!!

      Ah, thank you so much, Carol! I must admit it was quite intimidating looking down on ALL those HUGE buildings!! Interesting how the sky and lake blend together. This lake, I swear, is so blue! Cher xo

    I thought John was the tallest. The round building to John’s right is unique. Great photo Cher!

      Actually the Willis Tower (Sears; *LOL*) is the tallest in Chicago. That is exactly what I thought about the round building to John’s right, too! Hehehehe I should know what that is; I’ll find out and let you know! Thanks, John!! Cher xo
