Chicago from the River

I just uploaded more photos from Chicago; we went on an architectural boat tour of the city. It was really informative and engaging! It was a great time of day for photos. My favorites are of Trump Tower. Here they are:

    I love Chicago! Fortunately I live close and get to visit quite often! Oh and the filtered light and clouds are gorgeous!

    1. Thanks! You are lucky to live so near. 🙂

  2. Really lovely photos. I have always felt Chicago was an underrated city. It truly is a place of wonder. There are many good restaurants, neighborhoods and architecture.

    1. I agree! Chicago has a lot of great things to do and it was nice to be there.

      1. Yeah, it is a great city.I think there are so many nice places to eat….I lived there briefly in 2001, but never even scratched the surface. I would love to go back!

  3. *Jaw Drop moment* 🙂

    1. The buildings are beautiful, huh? 🙂

  4. Thanks for stopping by Keeping up with Carol and great pictures! I’m actually from the suburbs of Chicago originally. I take it you were there on vacation? Hopefully you got to have some pizza and hot dogs!

    1. Yes I was there on vacation. You are lucky to have lived there! We definitely ate some great pizza. 🙂

  5. You don’t know how much I enjoyed your boat trip. I lived in Chicago for 10 years and worked in the Shadow of the Sears Tower… seeing so many of those buildings daily. I never went on a boat trip. And yes, you are right… Chicago is Full of Life!

  6. Beautiful shots of the Windy City! 🙂

  7. What a gorgeous City – Chicago. I have to take a trip there.

  8. That second photo with the sun’s rays coming behind the building…stunning. I’ve never been but it’s definitely worth a spot on the bucket list. Wow.

    1. Thank you! It was exactly the right time to go on the boat. 🙂

  9. I love the energy I feel when I’m in a forest of skyscrapers. These are lovely.

  11. These are really wonderful. You have a knack for finding the clouds. 🙂

    1. I guess I am just lucky.

      1. A little luck, a lot of skill, and a good eye. You’ve got it all!

      2. Oh thank you! I have been feeling sort of down in the dumps and you just made me feel a lot better. 🙂

      3. I’m glad. We all have those days! Hope yours goes well today.
