I See Red...
So tonight, in honor of Valentines Day, and for my Valentine... I bring you a series of shots taken tonight from the top of Marina City showing buildings lit up red for the occasion.
First up, the LaSalle Wacker Building in the foreground, and the red in the background is 540 W Madison.
I took about 80 shots from the rooftop tonight, but unfortunately, the wind was not to my favor, and many of them just didn't come out. Of the several attempts to capture the Sears Tower, this one was about as good as it got. Also included... 311 S Wacker (aka: White Castle Headquarters).
Looking north, Chicago Place looming in the distance.
This pic is actually amazing when you think that I was two miles away. I am amazed at how clearly you can see the front of the Field Museum.
The top of the Heritage at Millennium Park has become a new addition to the forest of holiday lit buildings.
OK, not taken tonight, nor from the top of Marina City, but about a week ago when I was hanging out around the Lake Street Bridge. The Merchandise Mart is always a good one to rely upon to know what holiday is next. (Note the Sterling on the right in the background.)
