South from the John Hancock TowerSouth from the John Hancock TowerDusk falling over Chicago as seen from one of the tallest buildings in Chicago Nestling on the shores of Lake Michigan, the skyscrapers of Chicago give way to mile upon mile of flat ground with gazillions of lights glowing in the dusk. 

I recently spent a week in Chicago and had the absolute pleasure of seeing Chicago from a variety of perspectives, whether it was from the lake during the day:

But you also get to see a different perspective on the street:

All the photographs on this website are available for purchase (but you will have to contact me directly if you would like to buy the panoramas since they are not standard sizes)

Do let me know what you think of the range of photographs.

Thanks
