I must thank my dear friend Amy Sturdy for letting up on the 18th floor of the building she lives in so I could take this shot. Hopefully she will be able to sneak me back up there during nightfall before she moves out so I can do some long exposures *hint*hint*

what a great perspective! and a really beautiful building - its beauty was hidden to those who worked on the 18th floor in the building across the street, but now you made it available!

Totally gorgeous perspective! It makes the building look like it's one of those Monopoly miniature hotels. :)

Fantastic shot of the "Harold Washington". You don't know how many times I've been down on the street under this building plotting how I could capture it from this angle. It's good to have friends like Amy!!
