Today’s featured photo of the day! The feature is: Architecture – The Skies of Chicago, Illinois – An  Aerial View

Here is today’s featured photo presentation of presentation of the bird’s eye view from John Hancock Observatory in a view of the area due west from the building, prominently between Oak and Chicago Avenues. The photo is about 45 minutes before sunset, and the lights of the city are viewable, but the sun is just degrees from being in the viewfinder. The photo was purposely taken on the underexposed side, but not so much so that it is backlit, but about half the effect, so that the shot was not underexposed. It is architecture like the great West Side of Chicago that makes it look like we are flying higher than a bird, yet a beautiful gem! It is photo shots like this that make the City of Chicago a very luxuriously enchanting city–among great and unique examples of very great staples in the world, and the a great city of all it’s very own, and a great place to visit for a relaxing summer sunset! Date – July 1981.

  1. That’s amazing! I’ve flown over Chicago at night, and it looks beautiful all lit up. The lake was SO big, at first I thought we were over NY and that the lake was the Atlantic Ocean! (I asked a flight attendant what city was that down there, she said Chicago).
