Killer Green River...

In Seattle they had the Green River Killer. In Chicago, we have a Killer Green River.
This shot will forever define that this was taken in 2005 (with the Sun-Times building gone, and the Trump building not yet started.) The only problem with that is that ten years from now, people will think this was taken on March 17, St. Patricks's Day, 2005. But in reality it was taken yesterday. Which leads me to this question... Why is it that Chicago celebrates holiday's on days other than the actual holiday? Like 4th of July fireworks on July 3rd?

More pics to come on St. Patricks's Day (Since that is the actual day this is supposed to represent).

Never has this much of the IBM Building been visible.

Is that due to pollution, or is it just a special event?

Either way, that's an amazing shot...

The river is dyed green every year for St. Patrick's Day using a vegetable-based dye.

It's really creepy cool in person!
